Samba - File Permissions

Hello, I have an NT4 Domain that has a RH8 Samba 2.2.5-10 box and a WinXP box connected to it. I can access the files via WinXP on the RH8 Samba machine just fine. I can even change the file permissions via Windows GUI.

I recently upgraded (not fresh install) to RH9 w/Samba 2.2.7a-7.9.0. All seems to work with accessing files except I can no longer change file permission using the windows GUI.

I get an access denied error.

Any suggestions?

Not Fixed

My solution below did not work. Anyone else have this issue?

My Solution:

In the nsswitch.conf file for the lines:

passwd: files nisplus
shadow: files nisplus
group: files nisplus

I removed nisplus and used winbind:

passwd: files winbind
shadow: files nisplus
group: files winbind

I originally had all three 'files nisplus winbind'.

That solved my issue, with using XP to change file permissions on a RH9 samba share.
