I bought a Mac Mini (OSX High Sierra), also with the intention to use it as a file server. I am very surprised that this seems to be an issue.
I am using Samba share that is also supposed to work for Windows.
I created 2 users on the Mac Mini --> User1 and User2.
When I now share a folder "User1-share" from the User1 account and give rw permissions to both users for this share, then these permissions do not seem to be inherited. This means that if I create a file or folder in the shared folder via network with User2 from another mac, then User1 does not have permissions to write to this file.
This seems to have never really worked based on this article the problem exists since 2012?
Is this a common problem and can't be solved. I hoped that maybe someone came around this already and knows the solution?
I am sure there is more info required to track down the issue and I am happy to provide it.
Thanks in advance for any help,
