inheritable permissions


Hello,
I have a problem with permissions and not sure how to resolve it.
this is the scenario:
two users
test1, test2
part of a group called test

each user is logged onto a Samba domain, the client machines are win2k

a folder called "test folder" which is shared, root user created the folder and is owner, the group permissions are set to rwx for "test" group.

test1 creates a folder called "new folder"
test2 has access to it but can not create or modify the contents of it.

is there a way to get the permissions to filter down from the main folder (test folder) so that if user test1 creates a folder all users in the test group from the main directory group has rwx permissions. can i also retain the owner as root and not the person who created the folder?
i have used the GUI to set the set gid and set uig bits but that doesnt seem to make any difference. i dont know the command way for that, but it shouldnt make any difference should it?

if you need any further information please ask.

Steve

Hello

Since the rights issue is dealt with on this topic:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=339810
, it would probably help if you told people that the issue here is with SAMBA.

Yves.

no offence but this is the newbie forum, which i posted my question here - how am i supposed to know the problem is with Samba? and if it is a problem with Samba how do I fix it?

Samba has the main directory shared and also has permissions set to read/write for everyone.

I don't know myself. I just point out that Samba+Windows is the only difference I see between this thread and the one I link to... that's all. I wish you'll find what you're looking for.

Yves.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
