Subject: [Samba] write list for share is ignored

I recently updated a Samba server from Fedora Core 4 to CentOs 4.5.  The
old server had samba version 3.0.11 installed while the newer has samba
version 3.0.33 installed.  The following file is a simplified version of
my smb.conf file:

  debug level = 5
  security = domain
  workgroup = CSI-INTRANET
  auth methods = guest, sam, winbind
  server string = Software Engineering Workgroup Server
  load printers = yes
  guest account = nobody
  log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
  max log size = 1024
  encrypt passwords = yes
  socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
  dns proxy = no
  map to guest = bad user

  winbind separator = \\
  idmap uid = 10000-20000
  idmap gid = 10000-20000
  winbind enum users = yes
  winbind enum groups = yes

  available = yes
  browseable = yes
  path = /home/group/cora
  public = yes
  guest ok = yes
  read only = yes
  write list = @cora
  force create mode = 0775


Why do you have this set?

read only = yes


"If this parameter is yes, then users of a service may not create or
modify files in the service's directory."
