Description Jose Plans 2006-03-29 04:38:24 EST
Description of problem:
Using smbcacls(1) command, OWNER can be modified with "-C name" option.
But OWNER cannot be modified with "-M OWNER:name" option.
In the same way, GROUP can be modified with "-G name" option.
But GROUP cannot be modified with "-M GROUP:name" option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) execute smbcacls(1) with "-M OWNER" option.

# smbcacls //SAMBA/share testfile -U "administrator" -M "OWNER:user1"

2) check modifying OWNER name by smbcacls(1).

# smbcacls //SAMBA/share testfile -U "administrator"
OWNER:administrator    <--* OWNER is not modified to user1.
GROUP:Domain Users
ACL:Domain Users:ALLOWED/0/R
Actual results:
The OWNER name is not modified.

Expected results:
The OWNER name is modified to user1.

Additional info:
This should work as stated on the smbcacls(1) man page.
I'm also attaching patches for both RHEL4 and RHEL3.
