Viewing File Security on a Samba Share

From an NT4/2000/XP client, right-click on any file or directory in a Samba-mounted drive letter or UNC path. When the menu pops up, click on the Properties entry at the bottom of the menu. This brings up the file Properties dialog box. Click on the Security tab and you will see three buttons: Permissions, Auditing, and Ownership. The Auditing button will cause either an error message "A requested privilege is not held by the client" to appear if the user is not the NT administrator, or a dialog intended to allow an administrator to add auditing requirements to a file if the user is logged on as the NT administrator. This dialog is nonfunctional with a Samba share at this time, because the only useful button, the Add button, will not currently allow a list of users to be seen.
