Thanks for the response.
We are using win 7 on desktop pc's and Ubuntu 16.04 w/Samba.
Do you have any sample config's for 'vfs_accl_xattr' for Windows.
My issue may be more about file locking than permissions???

Samba doesn't actually have any file permissions, it uses the OS
permissions, but you can use VFS modules to better use them, for
instance 'vfs_accl_xattr' for Windows

Without knowing what OS's you are using and how you are running Samba,
it would all be guesswork.
