Allow group RW access to CIFS file share - Linux

Hi,

I've successfully setup the SMB/CIFS file share on a Linux server. However, when mounting the file share using fstab, all files only allow groups r-x access (no write access). Here's the listing in my /etc/fstab:

//192.168.1.1/alfresco /media/alfresco cifs credentials=/home/user/.smbcredentials,port=1445,dir_mode=775,gid=1003 0 0


The GID 1003 is for the group that I wish to have RWX access to the files.

The user has Manager access to all sites in Alfresco. Also, when I attempt to manually change the permissions of the mount, nothing happens. So
sudo chmod 775 -R /media/alfresco
does not change the permissions.

Interestingly the folders themselves have 775 permissions, but not the files.

Any clue how to allow group RWX access to the alfresco SMB/CIFS files?
