Thanks for the response. I changed my share configuration as below.
But now I cannot authenticate.
comment = JIAGEN project share
path = /export/newWTCCC
valid users = +WTCCC
write list = +WTCCC
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes
force group = +WTCCC
writable = yes
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 0770
Any ideas why?
I checked that the user is a part of the group (though not primary).
bmifsrd2:~ # groups prakash
prakash : users torque-users calendar-users irc-users WTCCC plone-
managers plone-members fmadmin fmuser
