I will change a old samba share (SMB1 samba 3) to a new samba 4.8.3 (as 
unix domain member server).

For this, I will copy datas from old share to the share via a rsync ssh 
command :
rsync -aAX --progress --delete --stats --human-readable -e "ssh -p 22" 
root at oldsambaserver:/mypath/* /mypath/

This command copy also all the acls from the old samba share and apply 
it on the new share.

But, I have to re apply new acls because I am using Posix attributes for 
uid and gid ;  the old share is a samba 3 (gid are in range 500-999) and 
new share is a samba 4 (with gid in domain range 14500 - 14999).

I would like to remove all uids and gids ; some acls for users (uid) 
were applied on the old share tree, I would to remove them especially.
Then I will apply the new acls.

Is there a linux command to reset all the acls on a folder tree (and 
files) ?
