Samba Access Rights


I'm using this:

Code:
[global]
   ...
   ...
   security = share

[software]
   path = /opt/software
   public = yes
   read only = yes
   admin users = esasse
All files are rwxrwxrwx root root.

This directory should be read only to everyone. This is working.
I (esasse) want to have admin rights in this share, but I only get read only.

What's wrong?

Are the UNIX permissions on that directory writable to essase? Samba can't give permissions above and beyond what are already set UNIX wise.

Yes, the directory and all files are rwxrwxrwx.
Isn't it right?

Hmm.. There is a user named essase on that machine? It may have something to do with the security = share. I have never used that. I use the user security and create samba users.

Yes, there is a named user esasse and a samba user esasse.
I can even access my home share without problems.
