Two thing here, what are you mounting the shares from ?, this may have a
bearing, but I think your main problems is that you may have turned off
'acl_xattr' on the shares. Try changing the 'vfs objects' line in
[global] to 'vfs objects = acl_xattr full_audit' and remove the 'vfs
objects' lines from the shares.
