On all files & directories from the share point & below, everything is owned by root:wheel & permissions are set to "chmod 750". I'm managing ACLs via Server Admin, and I have two basic groups, one with read only access & one with read/write. I'm using the default "read only" & "read/write" permission set in Server Admin & everything is propagated down into the share.

I'm not able to see anything useful in the error logs as to why this might be. I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with AFP not using the ACLs.
What applications are the users using? Can you correlate the issues with a particular application(s)?
The most common issue I've ran into is where the work flow needs a permission inherited at some point but the file moves with in a share point. ACLs are only applied at the time of file/folder creation.
I have found it much easier to use full control ACEs instead of r/w ones, but YMV and you needs may differ from mine.
Be prepared, you will likely be requested to define what "not works" means in a more precise manner.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
