Hello there,

I am trying to provide a SAMBA share so that it is fully NTFS compliant, and inheritance gets propagated down properly.  Rather than show all the various configurations that I have tried to no avail, does anyone have an idea how to define one of these shares?   I want this share to be completely controlled by the AD admin, with little or no intervention from the linux admin providing the SAMBA share.   What linux file permissions need to be set for the share?  Do I need to run setfacl as well?  What statement defs need to be provided in smb.conf?

I would have thought that there would be a straight forward way of defining one of these shares, for defining a fully NTFS compliant share.  Below is a snippet of my file share def:

Comment = For samba share of volume share9
vfs objecrts = glusterfs
glusterfs:volume = share9
glusterfs:logfile = /var/log/samba/glusterfs_share9.%M.log
glusterfs:loglevel = 7
path = /
read only = no
guest ok = yes
map acl inherit = yes
inherit acls = yes
inherit permissions = yes
inherit owner = yes
nt acl support = yes
acl group control = yes

Thank you for any suggestions.
