I'm relatively new to Windows server management. I'm trying to setup folder redirection with GPO. The file server that's getting redirected is in a LXD fedora container.

for the most part I've been following the configuration from wiki.samba.org:




The problem that I'm having is setting the folder shares permissions in windows server 2016. when I try to modify the Permissions for my share folder in order to give Domain Users access I get:

Error Applying Security

An error occured while applying security information to:


Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied.

I'm pretty sure this is a problem with ACL either on the windows or linux side.

while testing ACL support in my container I when I run the security test I get this:

# setfattr -n security.test -v test2 test.txt

setfattr: test.txt: Operation not permitted

To me this indicates a problem with ACL on the smb share filesystem. If anyone has any idea of were to go from here, any suggestions would me much appreciated.
