OK, I ran the current patch cluster for Solaris 9 and reran the tests on
3.0.11rc1. As the owner of a powerpoint file I can open it but as the
member of a group, on a file with 666 perms, I can only get read-only
privs. 3.0.10 on the same shares with the same smb.conf works fine.
Here's the smb.conf:
# Global parameters
workgroup = MELAD
realm = MEL.NIST.GOV
netbios name = BOOGIE
server string = Test Server: Samba 3.0.X
security = ADS
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/private/smbpasswd

syslog = 0
log file = /var/spool/samba/%m
log level = 10
max log size = 0

The setup is basically the same as we've run for several years, with
only the new settings to join the AD domain. This is an Ultra 10 with
SunOS5.9, we use NIS for authentication for UNIX, AD on a Windows server
for Windows. Every username is duplicated in each authentication
server. All groups are enumerated in NIS.
I use exactly the same build process, same libraries, etc., for every
version of 3.0.x.
I ran a simple test case to capture a level 10 log, first with 3.0.11rc1
and then with 3.0.10. I stopped the server, erased /var/spool/samba,
set the link for /opt/samba for rc1, started the server, connected to
the share, went into a directory, opened a .ppt, closed it, closed the
share, stopped the server. Saved the log, then reran with 3.0.10.
If you would like, please let me know what I may send such as logs, etc.
I'll be trying the same tests with 3_0_RELEASE and 3.0.11pre2 later
tonight or tomorrow. Have to leave for class.
