Hi all,

I have a samba PDC on linux (kernel 2.6.16-gentoo-r3, amd64, 2cpu's, samba 3.0.22). My
passdb backend is an ldap-server on a different machine. I did an update from a slower

The configuration files on the old and new machines are equal. After the update
all seems to be OK. I can login on the windows-clients and access the shares on the
server. But a closer look shows that the file properties dialog on a windows machine
doesn't show the user, who ownes the file in the xfs-filesystem on the samba server (on
the old machine it worked). The domain groups are shown correctly.

Also all directories on a samba share have the R attribute set and some applications say
that the share is read only. But i can create, copy and delete files on the share with

I googled a lot, but I couldn't find informations which solves the problem or give me more
informations what the reasons for the problem are. It seems that the windows-clients
doesn't know the domain users. Have anyone ever seen this problem.

thnx a lot

P.S.: if a log is needed, please tell me which loglevel.
