we have problems with offline files on Windows2000/SP3 (also with XP/SP1) and
It works well on shares like eg. [home]. But we have a share which is
used by several different users to share their work. The smb-configuration for
the share is like this:
writable = yes
force create mode = 774
force directory mode = 774
force group = workers
path = /to/work
Let's explain the problem on an example:
The content of the directory /to/work is:
drwxrwxr-x 2 user1 workers 512 May 8 16:22 ./
drwxr-xr-x 3 root workers 512 May 8 15:21 ../
-rw-rw---- 1 user1 workers 16 May 8 15:49 user1.txt
-rw-rw---- 1 user2 workers 32 May 8 15:47 user2.txt
User1 marks the folder /to/work on his Win2000 client as an offline folder.
As long as he is online everything works like expected. He can edit and save
Than User1 goes offline and edit file user2.txt. After he is online again
he trys to synchronise the share. Now he gets an error saying "No permissions
to update file user2.txt" (my translation from a german Windows version :-) ).
If I set the debuglevel of the samba-server to 5 than I see that the file
is opened only "read".
Configuration error? Any solution?
