    Cool WinXP client setting ACL on Linux Server running Samba


    Any ideas on how to use WinXP client in an active directory environment to set an ACL on folder or file located on a Linux Server running Samba? And I'm looking for a way similar to how a WinXP client sets permissions on folders on a windows file server(GUI)...I''m part of a team that has researched different possibilities using SWAT and configuring smb.conf....however, we're looking for other options....Any suggestions?

    Something from the CentOS development team

    I've just received this from the CentOS development team:

    You will need to enable / mount your samba partition with posix ACLs to have the permissions

    controls you want.

    http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/do...4/ch-acls.html

    You will also need to ensure that the following is ON in your smb.conf:

    nt acl support = Yes

    ***Haven't had the chance to test this yet, but it looks promising.<<
