RedHat Samba file ownership issues sharing with Windows users


Hi all,
First post here so sorry it this is a dumb question or my understanding if off the mark.
I have installed Samba on a Redhat 6 box. I have AD intergration working correct as users are using their AD details to the share and can access, read, write the files etc.
We upload files to this share via FTP (local unix account on the server) the files take the owner and group membership of this user. Correct so far.
When a windows user edits these docs and saves them back the owner and group memberships are not being updated, they are staying as the original local account.
Is this correct? I would like the last user who edited the file to be stamped.

Thanks for any insight.
J

Can you please paste the output of 'ls -l' command? Run this command on Samba share directory and as well as inside this directory.

Sorry for the late reply.

Can I know which local unix user do you use to upload these files to the server ?

Which group this user belongs to ?

File ownership in your samba share belongs to "nobody" user and as far as I know its kind of "no login,no shell" account.
