I know this has come up before and before being chastised I spent a couple
hours reviewing the archives and could find the messages on it.
I have a user who when he attempts to save a MS Word Document (test
file.doc) to a samba share gets the following error:
Word cannot complete the save due to file permission error.
(I:\samba\directory\test file. Doc)
The user is the owner of the directory in question
drwxrwxr-x 2 user group 512 Jan 27 10:53 .
and when the save fails a number of temporary files are created:
-rwxrw-r-- 1 user group 0 Jan 27 10:52 ~WRL0607.tmp
-rwxrw-r-- 1 user group 0 Jan 27 10:51 ~WRL1263.tmp
-rwxrw-r-- 1 user group 0 Jan 27 10:41 ~WRL2046.tmp
-rwxrw-r-- 1 user group 0 Jan 27 10:53 ~WRL2572.tmp
I have recently upgraded to samba 3.0.21a and the user is using MS Word
As a side note this problem only effects MS Word, other applications are not
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
