I am having a "unique" problem with samba and can't seem to find a solution
to the problem.
I am running a samba 3.0.5 server on a Solaris 2.9 Server.
All Samba does is map the users home directory to there windows desktop.
In the home directory we have symbolic links to our web-server so users can
access their web-related content. We have two types of symbolic links, one
to directories and others to specific files.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user group 44 Apr 6 16:13 file.html ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user group 44 Apr 6 16:13 directory ->
If a user modifies a file in directory there is no problem everything works
If a user modifies the file.html it over rights the file
-rwxrw-r-- 1 user group 206 Apr 6 2005 file.html
However the problem does not exist with every piece of software, for example
notepad and wordpad do not overwrite the file while word and dreamweaver
Any have a solution to this problem.
