Samba file copy strangeness


I have Samba on RH 7.2 with Windows 2000 client machines.

None of the clients can upload any file where the name is or begins with the text string 'icon' to any Samba share.

Attempting to upload files such as 'icon', 'icon_' or any old 'iconANYTHING' results in an access denied, file may be in use error.

Any thoughts as to how I can chase this down?

Are there any veto options in your smb.conf file? 'testparm' will give you a full dump of your current smb confiiguration.
