Samba 3.0.22 .. 3.0.23b configured with security=domain, joined to windows 2003.
Samba has two shares, lets name them joe and joe1, with exactly the same
definition (copy/pasted, just the name differs)
Share definition like this
path = /opt/joe
writeable = yes
force user = joe
force group = users
valid users = domain/user1, domain/user2 etc.
From smbclient both shares work (of course, they have the same definition)
From windows xp client (logged in as domain/user1 or domain/user2) joe is not
accessible (no error from windows but doesn't enter it) but joe1 works. Oops.
As long as the share has any other name than joe, it works.
Same problem for a second share (windows cannot access it if share name equals
local force user name), but not for a third share tested with another local
user. Now I'm really confused.
Debug is pretty long and does not (at least to me) reveal any obvious error,
but I can attach it on request. Any ideas?
