Damn I hate upgrades. After updating at the weekend to FreeBSD 5.4-R in
a fresh install our samba server just doesn't want to play ball.
I have managed to get Samba3 working ok apart from when it comes to
using Excel documents. If a user has an excel document open and another
user tries to open it, Excel 2003 will fail with 'Unable to open the
file, it may be read-only or encrypted'
It worked perfectly before, I have driven myself mad trying to get it to
work all day :(
If anyone could lend a hand it would be very much appreciated......
relevant config, details etc. below:
FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE-p6 #1: Sun Sep 4 16:37:13 BST 2005
samba-3.0.12_1,1 from FreeBSD ports (I have tried 3.0.20 as well, no luck)
workgroup = TRIDENT
server string = SERV01
security = domain
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
netbios name = SERV01
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
dns proxy = no
wins support = no
interfaces = 192.168.120.6/24
encrypt passwords = yes
enhanced browsing = yes
comment = Operations - Stats Area
path = /u/stats
force user = root
guest ok = no
writeable = yes
valid users = user1, user2, user3, user4, user5
I have taken everything else out to try and solve this problem.
/u is mounted from another FreeBSD 5 box over NFS, I have tried all the
various oplock settings as well and this didn't make any difference.
