[Samba] SAMBA4 Fileserver & Disk Quota

Hello Micha,

we are using the sgid bit (chmod g+s <basedir>) in the base directory to
inherit the group of this base-directotry to all new directories/files
in it. In the smb share using this base directory you still have to set
"inherit permissions=yes" which takes care of inheriting the sgid bit to
new sub directories.

This way all directories/files have the same group. This works well here
 for many of our shares.

If this does not work for you, could it be that some ACL set on
00_stickygroup/ is getting in your way?

Have a nice day
