SAMBA 3 + ACLs: Different access rights in Linux and Windows

Dear Experts,

just an understanding question. I have a SAMBA share with the following ACL settings:

getfacl /share

# file: share
# owner: root
# group: root
user::rwx
group::rwx
group:mygroup1:rwx
group:mygroup2:r-x
mask::rwx
other::r-x

Open in new window


I'm not able to create/edit files on the Linux (Samba) server as a member of mygroup2:

touch test.file

touch: cannot touch `test.file': Permission denied

Open in new window


Logged on a Windows 2008 Server I see the same access rights like on the Linux server, but I can create files. Is it a correct behavior for the following configuration? My aim was to give the mygroup2 just a read access

[share]
        comment = share
        path = /share
        valid users = @mygroup1, @mygroup2
        force group = mygroupe1
        force create mode = 0770
        force directory mode = 0770
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes

Open in new window


Thank you in advance!

How about changing
force group = mygroupe1

Open in new window

to
force group = +mygroup2

Open in new window


This should force access level of mygroup2 for its members and default access to everybody else.
