samba and permissions Problems
Greetings all, Some day I think I will write a book about how to set up samba.
I have two problem:
First, permissions, I have a vfat partition on my suse9.0 server that I am trying to share as a samba drive to my win2k work stations. My Fstab has the following line in it:
/dev/ida/c0d0p9 /dos vfat rw,user,umask=0000 00
When logged in as root I do the following chown command:
chown CAD:CAD -R /dos
I get a message the says: "operation not permitted"
The current owner is root and current group for /dos is root. I have also tried to do chmod 666/dos and get the same results.
The second problem related to the first somewhat; I have samba3 installed on this machine with the following smb.conf file:
From my winXP machine I am not able to see the linux box in my network neighborhood but I came search for it and will find it. Although at one point in the setup I was able to see it in the network neighborhood. Since my permissions are wrong, I am able to read files stored in the /dos partition by root but am not able to save a file on this partition.
Anybody have any suggestions as to how to fix these issues?
