Is there a way to Enable Extended ACL Support from the GUI webmin interface in File Server? I browsed through all the options in Samba Windows File Sharing and can't find it.

I can manually edit the smb.conf file but prefer managing it all in the GUI. See Setting up a Share Using Windows ACLs.

To enable extended ACL support globally, add the following settings to the [global] section of your smb.conf file:

vfs objects = acl_xattr
map acl inherit = yes
store dos attributes = yes

I don't think Webmin supports that unfortunately.

FWIW Webmin (the web Admin UI we supply) is merely packaged and pre-installed by us, we didn't develop it. It's probably a setting worth having access to though, so perhaps it's worth suggesting it to the developers? I think that this is where to post feature requests, but it doesn't look like there is much activity there?!

When we add a fileserver confconsole/firstboot plugin (that I hinted at in a previous post - to allow easily joining the fileserver to a domain), this should be set by default.
