So yes, running as root. No idea why that fails.

Re. vfs objects the scientific explanation is:

1.- Somewhere I read this was good for Macs:

# Configure Samba to Work Better with Mac OS X
	min protocol = SMB2
	ea support = yes
	vfs objects = fruit streams_xattr
	fruit:aapl = yes
	fruit:metadata = stream
	fruit:model = RackMac
	fruit:posix_rename = yes
	fruit:veto_appledouble = yes
	fruit:wipe_intentionally_left_blank_rfork = yes
	fruit:delete_empty_adfiles = yes

And I put it in.

2.- A few days later - or earlier, I found that in order to set ACLs with windows I needed:

# To configure shares using extended access control lists (ACL)
	vfs objects = acl_xattr
	map acl inherit = yes
	store dos attributes = yes

And I put it in. In fairness I have no idea what those lines mean.

Re. username map, I had it configured long ago, but for some reason I thought I had no need for it, and commented it. My user.map has:

!root = MAD\Administrator MAD\administrator Administrator administrator

But I don’t use administrator anyway so I commented the line. Is there a need for it ? Should I add MAD\Luis there ? Luis is a Domain Admin.

All the best,
