You really mean **share**'s permission or files's permission in the share?

If former, simply to grant full control to "Domain Users" by Administartor from Windows or using sharesec command.

If latter, "dos filemode = yes" may help you.

"inherit permissions" takes precedence over "inherit acls" so in your conf, "inherit acls" is ignored.

I think that "map acl inherit" is too buggy to use in production.

Hello mate,

I really mean share's permissions, as Unix permissions are set to 777 just for testing. I may have to check this out later too. ;-)

I've corrected the inheritance thing you told me, although it didn't help that much.
