Samba on RHEL4: Windows users unable to rename or delete files
Hi all,

I've recently upgraded our RHEL4 server to samba-3.0.28-0.el4.9 (minor update) and ever since Windows users (Vista and XP) have been unable to rename or delete files on some shares.

Users *can* still create new files and edit those files where they have appropriate permissions.

Mac users are able to create, rename, edit and delete files and folders as expected.

Any ideas?

Update: It seems that Window's users are only allowed to rename/delete in folders where they are owners despite being members of the owning group.

What's going wrong?
