[Samba] Samba4 : Problem setting folder and file permissions from windows box

Thanks for pointing me to this bug. I'm not sure whether it's the same 
thing happening here though.
Because at first everything was running fine. The only thing I did was 
backing up the sytem using rsync, which
did not preserve the extended attributes.

But as I said, copying those extended attribute back on homes and other 
folders didn't fix the issue either.
I may try to reboot the system maybe, but I also have another idea in 
the meantime :

I see that the linux to windows accounts mapping is still working, for 
example the "profiles" folder have users ownership like 3000029,
and the map correctly to AD users in windows.

So I might as well create linux groups including those numerical user 
IDs, and apply them directly from command line in linux to files and 
instead of using windows explorer and security tab.
And it would also solve the backups issue. Because I realize that my 
"rsnaphot" incremental backups don't save those xattributes eiter...

I will look into it further into it, post to 3938 if it is relevant.
Thanks again for reading my post.
