I have:
- Linux 2.0.30
- NT 4.0
- Samba 9.16pl11
- same user name and password on Linux and NT 4.0 (user1, pwxxx)

and the smb.conf of below.

When I create a file on the samba share [tmp] from the NT 4.0 machine, the
owner is always 'nobody' (my guest account). I can not manage it to
give it my own name (user1).
I can not create a file in another directory neither, because samba always
tries to create as nobody.

With Win-95, everything works !

What is the difference in settings between Win-95 and NT 4.0 ?

Any idea's


   encrypt passwords = yes
   preserve case = yes
   guest account = nobody
   log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
   lock directory = /var/lock/samba
   share modes = yes
   workgroup = Office
   debuglevel = 3
   domain master = yes
   os level = 10
   wins support = yes
   wins proxy = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   create mode = 0750

   comment = User Directories
   path = /home
   public = yes
   writable = no
   printable = no

   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no
