I have the following share:
[shared tools]
writeable = yes
wide links = no
path = /mnt/home/samba/shares/sharedtools
write list = @sharedfiles
force directory mode = 775
force group = sharedfiles
force create mode = 775
user = @sharedfiles
The folder has the following ownership:
Owner: root
Group: sharedfiles
Others: -
The folder permissions are 775.

The user "eric" is a member of "sharedfiles" as well as other groups.

If the folder has groups "sharedfiles" and permission of 775 and I login as "eric" and eric is a member of "sharedfiles" then why are my Samba permissions read only?
