Hello all

How do you allow someone in a particular group (i.e. the group writers in my example below) other than the creator of a file (the owner) to set a document as being read only? This is the only problem I am facing with my samba shares at the mo which I need to fix, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Additional info:-

When a user in the group tries to mark a document as being read only the following error appears:-

'An error occured applying attributes to the file:

path\name of file

Access is denied'

The relevant samba snippet is below for this share:-

browseable = no
writeable = yes
path = /home/Share
comment = Public Folders
valid users = "Server\administrator",@"Server\Writers"
public = yes
inherit acls = yes

When ls -l in the Share dir a files permission may return something like this:-

drwxrwx---+ 2 Kris Writers 4096 2010-01-13 18:14 Test

If any further information or clarification is needed please let me know!

Thank you for any help in adv! Hope this all makes sense!
