Hi John,

I'm not familiar with acls, and I thought it may be more complicated in samba config if filesystem using acls. Is it true?

> I have the situation here. I want to share a directory (vobstor) which has multiple subdirectories. These subdirectories are owned by different groups. How can I setup the correct permission here in samba so that each group can has the correct access to their files? Below are my smb.conf file. With this configuration a few of groups are not able to read the files but they are able to open the shared location and see the files.  Any idea would be very appreciated.

Why don't you set this up on the native filesystem using acls?
