Nope. It means Samba believes that the whole disk ist write protected or the
disk is full (normaly not).
I had the same Problem and an other techi added following lines into
[global] and anything went right.

# Samba Tuning
deadtime = 15           ; Nicht aktive Clients beenden nach 15 Minuten
				# close inactive clients after 15 min
keep alive = 10         ; gibt es den Client noch? aller 10 Sekunden
				# test for client every 10 sec.
oplocks = no

# direktes Lesen/Schreiben gibt Probleme beim Starten von Programmen auf
# direkt read/write causes problems with starting programs on share
read raw = no
write raw = no
getwd cache = yes

Mit freundlichen Gru?en
