    Looking for a bit of help with permissions on a lion server.

    We have a Transfer folder where files are exchanged on our network.

    All staff have the "general" group assaigned to their username.

    So on our Transfer folder, the permissions that i've set are

    General - Read Write
    root - Read Write
    staff - Read Write
    Others - None

    When one user uploads a file its fine, but when another goes to overwrite the file it says they dont have permission.

    Looking at the file, the permissions don't revert back to the server. The file ends up with permissions like...

    general - read write
    (persons username) read write
    staff - Read only
    Others - Read only

    Never used to have this problem with Snow Leopard.
