But when I send the -HUP single, it reread smb.conf, but its permission does not affected. is there any wrong?
for example :
before changed
    path = /usr/src/test
    read only = yes
    read list = jim
after changed 
   path = /usr/src/test
   read only = no
   write list = jim
after reload the configuration file, aready connected client's permission on "test" not changed.
