Hi there,

I'm having trouble with permissions and ACL's running samba43.

I want to be able to set permissions on a folder to an specific user.

I'm having a similar issue reported here 

However my error message is slightly different:

When I set the permission on an specific user by creating a new folder 
inside the share, right click -> properties -> security tab I get:

An error ocurred while applying security information to:


The parameter is incorrect

I have tried changing the permissions manually with "chmod a+rwx /test/"

But this does not look like a permissions problem this looks more like 
samba or some setting in smb4.con itself

this is my smb4.conf file:

  Global parameters
         interfaces =
         bind interfaces only = yes
         workgroup = CW1
         realm = DOMAIN.NAME.COM.AU
         netbios name = SERVER1
         server role = active directory domain controller
         dns forwarder =
         printing = bsd
         server services = s3fs, rpc, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc, drepl, 
winbind, ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate, dns
         dcerpc endpoint servers = epmapper, wkssvc, rpcecho, samr, 
netlogon, lsarpc, spoolss, drsuapi, dssetup, unixinfo, browser, 
eventlog6, backupkey, dnsserver
         restrict anonymous = 1
         map acl inherit = no
         store dos attributes = yes
         unix extensions = no
         ea support = no
         idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
         browseable= yes
         writable = yes
         read only= no
         create mask = 770
         force create mode = 770
         directory mask = 770
         force directory mode = 770
         kerberos method = system keytab
         client ldap sasl wrapping = sign
         allow dns updates = nonsecure and secure

         path = /var/fileshare/test
         valid users = @DOMAIN.NAME.COM.AU\staff
         guest ok = yes
         read only = no

Not sure what am I missing, I appreciate your help.
