I have a NetGear ReadyNAS Pro2 that I'm trying to configure for use.  I'm experiencing some problems with CIFS permissions.

Scenario:  Share_Name:  office_share
Default Access:  Disabled
Share Access Restrictions:
Write-Enabled Groups:  Administrators,Executive,FNI,Office,Sales_Mgr
Advanced CIFS Permission:
Checked:  Automatically set permissions on new files and folders.
Checked:  Do not allow ACL changes to be more restrictive than this:
Group Rights:  Read/Write
Everyone Rights:  Disabled
When new folders are created over CIFS, set folder permissions as follows:
Group Rights:  Read/write
Everyone Rights:  Disabled
Advanced Share Permission:
Share folder owner:  mshaff01
Share folder group:  Office
Share folder owner rights:  Read/write
Share folder group rights:  Read/Write
Share folder everyone rights:  Disabled

Problem:  When a new file or folder is created within the share, other group members cannot access the file until I go into the GUI and Check the option to:  Set ownership and permission for existing files and folders in this share to the above settings.  This option is useful in cases where you are changing security levels and need to workaround file access problems.

I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO DO THIS EVERYTIME A NEW FILE IS CREATED!  PLEASE HELP!

Okay, so after a long call with Tech Support, we finally have this fixed!  My problem was on the Advanced Options Page.  The veribiage "Share folder everyone rights" does not apply to everyone with access to the NAS.  It applies to everyone with access to the specific share.  So, that option had to be set to read/write.
