Hi all,

I use SAMBA 3.0.13-1.1-SUSE on a SuSE 9.3 Pro boxed version.

Has anything changed w.r.t SuSE 9.3's SUSE 10.0 Samba versions? I use
the same setup in swat. Ver. 3.0.20b-3.1 (or 3.0.20-4) does not behave
the way it should.


Last week I installed SUSE 10.0 boxed version with its SAMBA version
3.0.20-4 (Updated by YOU to 3.0.20b-3.1-SUSE), on a x86_64 System. All
works, but with one major problem. 

Users can log in and see their files. New M$-Windows files and
directories can be created. The just created new M$-files, including all
older M$-files, can afterwards not be edited. An error is delivered that
the user does not have access rights with "Access denied". To try to get
access, I used one User's account and tried to allow all access from
Linux (chown -R user:group [User's directory] & chmod -R 777 [User's
directory]) and Samba's (Share with rw) side. I used SWAT for the
config. With a text editor in Linux I can change text files. In
openOffice Writer, I must supply a password for 'WORKGROUP', even though
the workgroup is set to ZYX


I noticed that the link to the documents from localhost:901 (SWAT) is
faulty in SUSE 10.0. Where can it be set? Where is
http://localhost:901/swat/help/... linked to? It is not in the normal
Apache www directory /srv/www.
