samba Version 3.5.4-5.1.2-2426-SUSE-SL11.3
We have recently transferred our file services from one host to
another. The old host was an OS/2 server. OS/2 is basically a single
user OS; the file (and directory) permissions were mostly irrelevant.
The new server is linux OS, opensuse 11.3 distribution. It, of course,
has more to say about file permissions.
The problem I am seeing is that Windows XP clients that have mounted a
share on the new server save files with permissions 0755. This is rather
odd; I would have thought 0644. (A PDF with an executable mode is not
very useful.) Nevertheless, because the group permission is read-only,
other users cannot access the files.
0755 looks like a typical directory permission. I would prefer to have
the default file permission be 0664.
Is there a setting in the server's samba configuration to define the
default file permissions?
We have a iMac running OSX 10.6.
