Posted Thread not being shown in Forum


Dear LQ,

I am a new member to LQ.
I have tried to post some tread to the "Server" Forum yesterday and today (10-4-2007). The title is "Samba, cannot see files, cannot write files".

As I post the New Tread, it shows a page saying that the tread will be added to the forum after it has been read by a moderator.

They were not posted.
Please help.

(The content of the post has been attached in the next paragraph.)

Dear All,

I am using Samba 3.0.25 on Fedora 7.
The /etc/samba/smb.conf is as following:

[global]
workgroup = WKG
netbios name = MYNAME
[share1]
path = /mnt/disk1
comment = files on mounted disk
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = no

The permission of /mnt/disk1 is:
drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 4096 2007-10-03 15:42 disk2

===========================

With this samba configuration, other computers can see \\192.168.1.2\share1 in their network neighborhood. They can also see the sub-directories under /mnt/disk1.

But users of other computers cannot see any files in the directories. Users also cannot write to the /mnt/disk1 and sub-directories.

Any thing I have done wrong?
What diagnostic test could help?

Regards,
Anthony

Try waiting for about 30 minutes after your post. If it still doesn't show up, post again.

PS: This is not in the norm and I'm rather embarrassed that this be your first impression on LQ.

Just occasionally a thread falls foul of the anti-spam measures and is moved to moderation. Posting twice ends up with a double post. If it happens again, to anyone, either wait for a mod to see and approve it or email or PM one of the mods of the board. As it is, one of us will need to delete on of the posts.

Just a note - "Dear LQ" would in no case trigger the spam filter. We try our best to avoid false positives, but a very very small percentage of them do happen. We try to approve those manually as quickly as possible.
