From: Remy Horton on


I'm running Samba 3.2.15 on a Slackware box, and I am accessing it from a
Windows Server 2003 machine that has been setup as a workstation and is
not part of a domain. I can login fine, but writing/renaming of files only
works if the world-write permission is set (either via chmod or via
Windows permissions for user group Everyone).

Oddly enough newly created files have the correct ownership, and for some
reason this only affects access from Windows Server 2003 - access from
Windows2000/XP/7 and Nautulas is not affected.

Any ideas? Below is my smb.conf..

workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Mausoleum
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
wins support = yes
comment = WWW Directories
path = /home/www
read only = no
guest ok = no
valid users = remy
printable = no
browsable = yes
hide unreadable = no
