Re: [K12OSN] smbldap adjusting permissions from Windows - SOLVED!



I managed to change permissions on a Samba-shared directory through
Windows.  No changes were needed on the Samba server.  I had to use a
different technique for changing the directory permissions through Windows.

1) In Windows, right-click on the Samba-shared directory and choose
"Properties".

2) Hit the "Security" tab.

3) Do not attempt to change permissions here!  Instead, hit the
"Advanced" button.

4) On the "Permissions" tab, select a user or group and hit the
"Edit..." button.

5) Make your permissions changes and wonder why the heck Windows has 14
different permissions options...

6) Hit OK

7) Hit Apply (or OK, I assume, but I didn't test it that way)

8) Hit OK

Does anybody know why this alternate process is needed, and why you
can't change directory permissions using the same method as changing
file permissions?  Is it fixed in later versions of Samba?
