If I remember correctly it doesn't matter what combinations you
'chmod' to. It changes to 755 as soon as you change ACLs from Windows.
I suggest you add uid- and gidnumber to all users and groups and chown
to a user:group (or perhaps group:group if possible). For example
chown FileShareAdmin:FileShareAdminGroup and let the user account
which operates the file share be a member of group
FileShareAdminGroup. With this approach you get some degree of
security if you also allow users to logon to the server with ssh for
example. And of course home directories.
Choice 3 and uid-/gidNumber assigned.
