Hello all,

I am looking to setup a Samba AD on my NAS. I am currently using the latest
version of NAS4Free which has Samba bundled into it already.

However, I am getting a very nasty error when I go in to setup the samba

I looked online and I did see a bug report on the same issue here:

However, I ma unable to run the setfacl command due to an invalid parameter

I also tried following these instructions which did not work:


As a side note, my version of setfacl does not include the -R command. So,
I have to run a command such as: find /mnt/ZFS1/test/ -type d -exec setfacl
-m u:John:modify_set:fd:allow {} \;

I was wondering if anyone found a fix for the issue I posted above.
