    Exclamation Samba Question!


    I'm new member here, nice to meey everyone!

    I have a question about samba that i use on Redhat.

    I have folder structure like this.

    [test]
    - [test1]
    - [test2]

    I have assign rules to folder test in samba about read only, who can access, force groups, create mode etc. and I want to assign rules to test1 too! but I don't know about, If I assign the rules to the parent folder, that rules wi ll affect to the child folder in it? (although child folder have own rules.)

    or don't have affect?


    Thank you!

    If it were me... i'd just make all parent entry's... but i believe the perms should propagate to the child.. Only thing you can do is test it and see

    Set the desired permissions on Test1 and Test2 exclusively and leave Test at the default permission level. If you set permissions at Test they will propagate to Test1 and Test2.
