> - I belong to a Unix group "uvdev" on this sequent server.
> - In the samba config file I have two shares, the home directories and
> another file system /a1/ox.dev/OX.DEV.
> - /a1/ox.dev.OX.DEV is owned by "root" and group "uvdev" and has
> permissions 777
> - we have a unix account by name "sccsadm"
> - Samba shares definition as in smb.conf file :
> comment = Home Directories
> browseable = yes
> writable = yes
> comment = Temporary file space
> path = /tmp
> read only = yes
> public = no
> comment = Samba DEV
> path = /a1/ox.dev/OX.DEV
> public = yes
> writable = yes
> printable = no
> write list = @uvdev
> force user = sccsadm
> force group = uvdev
> I am trying to include "force user = sccsadm" and "force group = uvdev"
