[Samba] Domain Users cannot use quickbooks

I use Quickbooks on a samba share with no problems. I have not yet tried
multi-user though, so perhaps this isn't helpful.

As a rule, I use Samba as a file server, not a Domain controller. I am not
yet confident of the domain server implementation, along with the NT print
server emulation. I server up printing, but do not attempt to supply the
drivers. It just seems to work out easier and better for everyone.

One issue you may want to look into is the "create mask" setting. On
multi-user database applications, it is not uncommon to have the first user
create a lock file. Other users need to access this file, but cannot if they
have inadequate permissions. Make sure to set the following for the share
containing Quickbooks:
create mask = 0777I have done this, as well as turning off opportunistic
locking (oplocks = no) on all shares that contain Act, Access databases, as
well as any other multi-user applications,solving the problem in every
case.Hope this helps...Steve----- Original Message -----
