Here's my setup: I have one Mac Mini Server running OSX 10.7 Server set up as my network's primary file server. (I just finished installing it yesterday afternoon.) It shares files to 10 or so computers running Windows 7. So far, I have:
- Created user accounts on the OSX machine with the same credentials as on Windows
- Set them as Sharing Accounts
- Created a group for the users
- Shared several folders (all subfolders of
/Shared Items) to the group with read & write permission
- Mapped the shared folders as network drives on all the Windows machines
Everything was working just great - until one user (who happened to be my boss) tried to save a file on the public directory and access it from another machine. He got a 'permission denied' error. I popped open Terminal and checked, and the directory was set to
drwx------, and all the files in the directory were set to
To keep things moving along until I figure out what's going on, I enabled the
root user and made a crontab to
chmod -Rv 777 the
/Shared Items directory once a minute, but it's a dirty hack and I don't like it.
Everything was configured through the Settings GUI in OSX.
smb is enabled and is being used. What am I doing wrong, and how can I fix this?
