Without using ACL (I have Samba passwd configured) and bringing in folders from an NT box does anyone know of a way (without doing each folder and then the contents of the folder) to change the permissions.
If you only have a few folders deep it's not really an issue but once your folders are nested many times over with hundreds of files it's beyond my patience to follow them all out.
I have read that you can change the permission if you access the share from windows as root, but after creating a root user in the NT domain and then accessing the share and simply trying to change the permissions and read only status, it seems to take. But when I reopen it, the permissions and read only have not been saved.
Additionally, I have made entries on the share entry in smb.conf for create mask, directory mask, force create mask, etc. But these seem not to have any effect either.
Thanks in advance.
