Here's the relevant
[someshare] path = /somewhere read only = No writeable = Yes guest ok = Yes create mask = 0777 security mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 force create mode = 0777 directory security mask = 0777
Say user1 creates a directory on that share. It's permissions will be:
drwxr-xr-x and the owner will be user1.
While user2 can access the directory created by user1, he receives a permission error when trying to create a file on that directory.
To me it seems weird that the permissions of the dir created by user1 aren't 777 as specified in smb.conf...
Edit: I forgot to mention a weird error that pops up in the client log when the permission is denied:
[2009/06/24 03:02:18, 0] smbd/trans2.c:unix_filetype(1130) unix_filetype: unknown filetype 0
What am I missing?
