we have samba server with version 3.0.6. we are facinga peciular
problem. on unix machine the user and his group got full permission
and others don't have any permissions (770) on a particular file . when
he is trying to access it from windows he couldn't open the file.
especially we are facing this problem with Microsoft visio (.vsd) and
Microsoft XL (.xls) files.
Eg: when user try to access the Microsoft XL file in his home directory
from windows with the 770 permissions , He is getting the following
*'<file_name>' cannot be accessed. The file may be read-only,or you may
be trying to access a read-only location .Or,the server the document is
stored on may not be responding.*
He is accessing it from windows XP machine as follows..
start --> run-->\\sambaserver\<user_home_dir>
He is able to browse his home directory but he couldn't open that file.
If he gives the read permission for "others" than he is able to open the
Eg: If the file got the permission 774 than the user able to open that
I did all the workaround regarding this like adding the user to
coressponding groups in windows also where he belongs into unix but no
we have other servers also with version 2.2.8a, but we are not facing on
Can anyone help , please ?
