I have set up a samba shared folder /shared
I have created 2 users Jack and Jill, and they are part of the Developers group. Developers have read write and execute permissions on the /shared directory.
I have executed chmod g+rws /shared to ensure that the folder group is used and not the user's default group when adding files.
Here's my problem:
Jack is on a Windows 7 machine and creates a new folder "New Folder" in the samba shared folder. Jill is logged onto the linux machine. Jill can read the contents of "New Folder" but can't modify or delete it. Why?
If Jill creates a folder "New Folder 2" in the /shared direcory while logged in, Jack can see this folder fine and can modify/delete it.
Why are the permissions different when a file or folder is added in windows to when I create the folder on linux?
I want the default behaviour to be that members of the Developers group have read write permissions on all files and folders in the directory. So if Jack adds a folder in windows, Jill has permissions to delete it by default.
