Fair point about the reboot. Just did that, then logged out of Windows and
back in. The error remains, I get access denied when trying to change the
share permissions in any form, changing permissions of underlying folders
is not a problem though.

I've set up Samba 4.11 in an unprivileged container. At this point, I can
only assume that this might be the issue here, though I can't quite
understand why. Does anyone happen to have an explanation, is there maybe a
workaround? I know for a fact that it works with privileged containers,
having used several of these myself.
