    Samba and group permissions


    Hi,

    This is a interesting confusing problem.

    Ok I have group with 3 users.

    I have a folder in /home with owner as root, and group that has read/write permissions.

    However if a user opens up a file and saves it via samba, the owner changes to the user, and the group members only have read permissions on the file.

    Any clues or ideas?

    Cheers in advance.

    Jon

    Use "force group" and ''force user" parameters
