smb permission for (sub)user group

I'm trying to set up a separate user sub-group of users. The result I'm looking for is to have the file and directory owned by the user, the file group be the sub-group, but the problem I'm having is to end up with permssion 770 (Owner rwx, Group rwx, Other nothing). The smb.conf section for this group is below - what am I missing?


comment = DPW common directory

path = /home/dpw

broweable = yes

read only = no

valid users = @dpw

create mode = 0660

force create mode = 0660

directory mode = 0770

force directory mode = 02770

force group = +dpw
