CANNOT BROWSE (the solution)

I´m using the binary distribution of SAMBA 1.9.16 on SCO3.2v4.2.
Last weekend we got a new server. Installed all applications and all
worked fine (as expected) ...
the win/nt clients could map the shares, but they could not browse the
I checked the "browseable=" options, but everything looked ok.
Increasing the debug level and stepping through the logfiles showed that
"/usr/local/samba/var/locks/browse.dat" could not be opened.
This failed because of missing access permission of ../var and
../var/locks to our users!
After setting the directory permissions - everything works fine again!!!
Due to the last "cannot browse" articles in this list, I post this one.
Perhaps someone has got the same error.
Once again: You all made a real good work on SAMBA! Go on.
