Samba and permissions ( permissions seems ok but wont work anyway )

Another one on the topic Samba and permissions.
I have set up a share for "/" that i can access and list the folders and files inside. But i cant folders that have been mounted (other disks) or folders that i create through the terminal. The permissions seems to be right.
For example i created a folder inside /tmp called test through the samba client and then i created a folder called test2 through the terminal and made sure that my two folders /tmp/test and /tmp/test2 had the same permissions:

[root@app tmp]# mkdir test2
[root@app tmp]# ls -dl test test2
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Apr 10 14:10 test
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Apr 10 14:11 test2

I can open the folder called test from my smbclient but not the folder test2.
I am running samba server 3.6.9-168.el6_5.
Do i need to provide more information or do anyone have some suggestion of what can be wrong?

Solved this. Was SELinux that was blocking. Settting:

setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on

was the solution.
