I am trying to use the cdrom from one Sun server for software
installation on NT Clients. I am using samba 1.9.18p7 on solaris 2.5.1
Here is my smb.conf:
   workgroup = WIWI 
   server string = Windows NT Server 5.0
   debug level = 2  
   log file = /opt/samba/var/log.%m
   max log size = 10
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
   read prediction = yes 
   interfaces = 
   local master = yes 
   os level = 100 
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   wins support = yes
   wins proxy = yes
   dns proxy = yes
   protocol = NT1
   mangle case = yes
   mangled names = yes
   default case = lower
   case sensitive = no
   preserve case = yes
   short preserve case = yes 
   comment = HOMES
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   create mode = 0755
   comment = APPS
   path = /export/win/apps 
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   available = yes
   printable = no
   write list = ntadmin
   create mask = 0775
   #share modes = no
   #locking = no
   comment = PUBLIC 
   path = /export/home1/public 
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no 
   write list = ntadmin, @mitarb
   create mask = 0775
   comment = INSTALL 
   path = /export/win/install
   browseable = no 
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no 
   write list = ntadmin
   locking = no
   share modes = no
   create mask = 0775
   comment = CDROM 
   path = /cdrom/cdrom0
   browseable = no 
   available = yes   
   public = yes
   locking = no
   read only = yes
I am connecting exported cdrom with office97 pro inside as drive e: and
i am trying to make administration installation ( with e:\setup.exe /a)
on service APPS connected as drive i:. During installation i am getting
messages that three files cannot be read :
I am ignoring those messages and administration setup is complete. When
i am doing the same installation procedure, but usind cdrom exported by
one NT Client i have no any error messages, all files are readable. Is
there something wrong with my smb.conf, or is it one samba bug ?
Changing share modes and locking to no on the APPS is adviced for the
client installation but not for server installation. 
Many greetings, Tomek
