Unable to move file in samba


In windows, there error is "You need permission to perform this action". The destination folders permissions are: drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096. What is the best way to give access to the user so I can move this folder to this destination?

Hi sniper8752,

The first thing that comes to mind is that your destination directory has restrictive permissions. It is owned by root and write permissions are restricted exclusively to the user root (755).

It would be useful if you could describe your situation in more detail, however. You mention samba and Windows in your post but it isn't very clear what you are trying to do with which user code from which computer to which other computer ... So we have to guess.

Thx.

Sure; I am trying to move a folder to a new location. The folder I am moving has these permissions: drwxr-xr-x 2 root root. Let me know if this helps, or you need more information.

that is definitely not enough
you need to tell us the user which tried to move that folder and the rights on the tartet side too. also you need to specify the mount options....
