world writeable files will not stay world writeable
okay i have about 100mb of accounts files sat on a windows server replacement samba box ( mandrake 9.1 with samba 3 )
the box is working fine with samba and what have you, however the company uses a popular account package called SAGE. Now if i go do a chmod 777 on all the data files ( chmod -R 777 /company/accounts ) the system runs fine all day.
when the users come to use the system in the morning all the permissions have been nocked back to nothing ( just read ), and the program requires full write permissions to the files ( dont worry the samba share is only avalible to select users )
now i am having trouble finding what cron process is fiddle-ing with my files.
out of annoyance i wiped out msec in /etc/cron.daily and it still switches my files back.
( i presume its cron because it changes back over night, and its not a user because the account are all disabled over night )
the main company data folder 'company' is in the root dir ( / )
the distro is mandrake 9.1
and i have samba 3 running.
does anyone out there have any ideas?
