Re: [PLUG] samba question

     In the last few cases of this that I've dealt with, it had to do with the fact that the client machine was trying to do permission checking.  Because of this, the request was never reaching the SMB server.  Try adding "noperm" to your list of arguments when you mount.

I have an old red hat 9 samba server, and have built a replacement with
Fedora Core 8.  I've copied all the data files over, and made all the
directory and file permissions the same on both systems.

I edited the new server's smb.conf, and restarted smbd.  I see the new
share from M$ windows PCs, same as with the old share, but I can not add
or edit a file in any directory on the new server.

I mounted the new samba share (called "netdrive") from the local machine,
and even from there, it's read-only.

on the new server:

[root@dolphins /]# smbd -V
Version 3.0.28-0.fc8
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# mount //dolphins/netdrive /test -rw -o user=bill
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# touch /test/testfile
touch: cannot touch `/test/testfile': Permission denied
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# umount /test
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf

       max log size = 250
       wins support = Yes
       hosts allow = 192.168., 127.

       comment = network drive
       path = /usr/local
       read >        guest ok = Yes

Any ideas?  thanks,
