It all depends just how zentyal is setting the ACLs, if it setting the
normal Unix 'UGO' permissions, or if it is setting the permissions in
smb.conf, then this will not work correctly. It may be using
'setfacl', but even this is not the same as setting the file
permissions from Windows.

It may be that it just appears to work, until something goes wrong...

I think you are suggesting creating a Unix domain member and using this
as a fileserver, this would be a good idea.

Creating a share is easy, just follow the information on the Samba
wiki. It just a case of adding something to smb.conf, then creating the
required directory for the share and finally moving to a windows
machine and setting required permissions.

This is strange, does something happen every Wednesday ? Is there
anything in the logs ?? perhaps raising the log level in smb.conf will
throw light on the problem.
