searching through some doco from SWAT I couldn't find the answer to my
question. You guys are my only hope.
We (my boss, workmates and myself) are trying to set up a Linux backup server
to centralise backups from Linux boxes, Windows and Macintosh boxes. We are
running Dave on the macs, SuSE Linux and samba on the linux machines, Win95
and 2000 on the others. everything works luverly, EXCEPT one thing. Copying
TOO the server from a linux machine. I can copy from the box.
here's my setup,
security = user
user = matt
guest = matt
psword encrpt = no
preferred master = yes.
logged in to SuSE Linux 7.0 as 'root' but want to connect to file server as
I only included info. that *I* think is helpful which is likely different to
what *IS* helpful.
I can copy FROM the file server to my machine. but I don't think my login is
getting proper write access to the server.
All macs and Windows boxes can write to there shares no problem.
Only Linux to Linux or Samba to Samba fails.
Thanks in advance.
here's my /etc/smb.conf for reference
