I have a samba share on a linux server (RHEL 6) that I am accessing via Windows 7.
I set the samba share with a create mask of 0664, but when I create files via samba from my Windows 7 machine, it creates the files with a permission level of 0674. If I edit a file, it changes its permissions to 0674 as well. If I remove the create mask for the share and rely on the default create mask of 0644, it creates files with permissions of 0774. My umask is 0022. I've tried a number of settings from the manual, but none seem to do the trick. Any ideas as to what is happening and how I can fix this?
Ideally, new files would have permission level of 0664 and existing files would maintain their permission level.
