I have an interesting situation where the trustee assignments on a
number of directories appear to be corrupted when viewing them on
Windows, but they appear fine when viewing them with the "rights"
command in Linux.

e.g.

$ rights -f messiahweb/docs/acdept/depthome/engineer/ show

Trustees and Inherited Rights Filter
---------------------------------------------------------------
File: /media/nss/WEB2/messiahweb/docs/acdept/depthome/engineer/
---------------------------------------------------------------
Trustees:
(1) .D-Engineering.Web.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]
(2) .DVader.Users.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]
(3) .Whitmoye.Users.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]
(4) .JMcCausl.Users.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]
(5) .MWalsh.Users.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]
(6) .TVanDyke.Users.GR.MC.MC-TREE.
[read, write, create, erase, scan, modify]

But from Windows (using the RIGHTS command)...

W:\>rights messiahweb\docs\acdept\depthome\engineer /T
URSA\WEB2:\MESSIAHWEB\DOCS\ACDEPT\DEPTHOME\ENGINEE R
No group trustees have been assigned.

Other trustees:

Unknown Object [ RWCEMF ]
Unknown Object [ RWCEMF ]
Unknown Object [ RWCEMF ]
Unknown Object [ RWCEMF ]
Unknown Object [ RWCEMF ]

And with the Novell client user interface, it looks something like:

Trustees:
[ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]
[ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]
*R] [ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]
sG?U-M???P?T-MB??GG?@IU- [ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]
wGHN?G?e?M?d?MB??GG?@I [ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]
wGHN?G??pR??pRB??GG?@?? [ ][X][X][X][X][X][X][ ]


Any ideas?

AFAIK, I am running the up-to-date version of ncpserv, but it's possible
this corruption was present from before that update... I'm not sure. If
I delete these entries and recreate them, can I be sure this won't
happen again?
