Cannot create files on samba share
I am using samba version 3.0.10 on Fedora Core 3. I have created a homes share on my Linux myserver machine, and I can successfully read and write it when mounted on a Windows XP machine. However, if I try to mount it from a different Linux host, I can only read from the share: creation of new files is not possible. Moreover, it seems that I can delete files which already exist on the share! (When I try to create a new file, the filename apeears on the directory list, but with zero size).
Here is my smb.conf:
netbios name = MYSERVER
log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
lock directory = /var/lock/samba
security = share
encrypt passwords = yes
server string = %L
browseable = no
read only = no
writable = yes
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
Another thing: when logged into myserver, the users can manipulate their homes without any problems, so it does not seem to be a permission issue.
Thanks in advance for any help!
