Betreff: [Samba] how to reset home directory ACLs?

Hi guys,

I'm migrating an old samba3 domain to a new domain with samba4 (1 DC  +
1 Fileserver + other members)

I've imported all users trough a script with samba-tool, sucessfully mapped
UID and GID on all machines using winbind, then I started rsyncing the old
server shares to the new fileserver.

rsync -rltmvh --delete-after --exclude=.recycle /OLDSERVERSHARE

now, maybe in the old fileserver there where some screwed permissions (as I
inherited it from previous IT who left).
so I
chmod -R -c 770 /NEWSERVERSHARE
chown -R -c administrator:"domain users" /NEWSERVERSHARE

and with this I'm able to manage it trough RSAT and set correct permissions
to the majority of shares.

I have still an issue with home folders.
many files are readonly for the users but if they copy and paste they can RW
access the copy.
If I check ACL permissions of those RO files I see they don't have the
permission for the user that is supposed to be the owner.

is there a way I can recursively and easily fix ACLs on the homes folders
and subfolders?
maybe a new rsync run with some other parameter to fix acls as theyre
supposed to be in destination?
any clue?

thanks in advance for your suggestions
