Arrow How to set umask value to 0007


I have installed Redhat Linux 9 on my server and using Samba 3.0.7 as PDC for our network, I have shared a lot of directory for samba users under data directory I have given access to a folder to perticular group and I set umask value to umask 0007 through CLI, it's works well on the directory before the umask value updated, but if someone in the group create a new folder in it others on the same group cloud not do any changes or write anything under the directory created. To come over this peroblem either I have to run umask 0007 every now and then or enter the command chmod -R 770 newdir.I feel this not a good method to follow in a live environment. I would appreciate if anyone can help me in this regard.

I think that adding umask to user profiles (user starting scripts) may help.

You can either change the umask value in /etc/profile which affects all users, or create for a user a ~/.profile and put umask 0007 in it.
