comment Server 2012 - System State backup - exclude winsxs - any issues?
Thanks. We have limited backup space available on a web server, hence wanting to exclude. Sounds like it's not worth the grief ;-) Thanks for your advice

comment Hard drives continuously failing in Fujitsu RX300 server
Turns out that for us, it was the XFS filesystem that was the issue. Once we ditched this, the problems went away and hasn't returned.

comment Problems with “Read Only” on a Samba share from Windows machines
A quick fix seems to be to create a generic user (e.g. StaffMember) and use the "force create" syntax to make all files created/edited by chown'ed by that user. This means that all users on the network are pretending to be same when opening/editing files. Not ideal, but it does sort of work

comment Problems with “Read Only” on a Samba share from Windows machines
I've updated the original post with the Samba config. I am defining the permissions from the share definition. Yes, "setting the read only flag" means right clicking on the file and ticking the box - this method can't be changed, as it's actually carried out automatically by a piece of software to stop users working on a file. Therefore, I can't simply alter permissions to make it work - the "read only" tickbox needs to be made to work
