[Samba] Samba setting read only on document on share

Hello all

How do you allow someone in a particular group (i.e. the group writers in my
example below) other than the creator of a file (the owner) to set a
document as being read only? This is the only problem I am facing with my
samba shares at the mo which I need to fix, so any help would be greatly

Hope this makes sense!

The relevant samba snippet is below:-

        browseable = no
        writeable = yes
        path = /home/Share
        comment = Public Folders
        valid users = "Server\administrator",@"Server\Writers"
        public = yes
        inherit acls = yes

When ls -l in the Share dir a files permission may return something like

drwxrwx---+ 2 Kris Writers 4096 2010-01-13 18:14 Test

If any further information or clarification is needed please let me know!

Thank you for any help in adv!
