Samba and NTFS folder permissions

I have a file server setup with samba integrated with swat management.
The server isn't a domain controller.

The file server is working well with the shares all working correctly except for one problem.

I would like the users be able to manage the folder permissions from a windows PC. This can be done from a login as the root user if need be but, the key is that the system be manageable from the windows PC.

I have followed the instructions of multiple how to's but still get and error that access is denied when trying to apply permissions.
I am able to search the server for users to add and the names resolve.

What are the configurations that I should be looking at where the NT permissions in samba are configured.

nt acl support is set to yes and any other acl settings used produce the same result.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Hi !
Did you enable acl and user_xattr on your file system (acl and user_xattr options in fstab) ?
