[Samba] Best practice to import folders to Samba?

Hai Andres, 

You can copy everything to the new locations and then remove all old acls.

echo "Removing old ACL's"
setfacl --recursive --remove-all /srv/samba/datashare

echo "Recursively removing access to : other (guests)"
chmod -R o-rwx /srv/samba/datashare

echo "Re-apply root:root on /srv/samba/datashare"
chown -R root:root /srv/samba/datashare

! Root:root is use, so only the Administrator can create new folders and set rights from this point. 

At this point all subfolders are clear and ready for the new acl's.

Good luck.
