Hi Marc!!

I use this:

Centos 6.4
MS Windows 7 Enterprise

this is contain of smb.conf file :

# Global parameters
        workgroup = MYDOMAIN
        realm = MYDOMAIN.COM
        netbios name = SAMBA
        server role = active directory domain controller
        dns forwarder =

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.com/scripts
        read only = No

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
        read only = No

path = /usr/local/samba/var/profiles
        valid users = @"MYDOMAIN\Domain Users"
        write list = @"MYDOMAIN\Domain Users"
        read only = No
        browseable = Yes
        writeable = Yes

this is the contain of log.samba file:

[2013/08/17 16:59:23.658652,  0] ../source4/smbd/server.c:370(binary_smbd_main)
  samba version 4.2.0pre1-GIT-20b64ea started.

  ../source4/dsdb/dns/dns_update.c:323: Failed SPN update - NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT

Now, in security tab it shows (profiles folder):

"you do not have permission to view or edit this object's
permission settings."

In Owner tab show this:

"current owner: unable to display current owner"

when I tried to change the folder's owner:

An error ocurred while applying security information to:

Access is denied

These are the profiles' permissions in Centos:

drwxrwxrwx. 2 root root   4096 ago 17 17:11 profiles

what Can I do??

Hello Jose,

Does your filesystem on which you have the share, supports extended ACLs 
and are they enabled during mount (depending on your filesystem this may 
be automatically done).

Anything in the logs?
