Generally, how can I get a dump of a running configuration?  What query do I need to run to get a listing of the actual options being used when running, for example when a particular option is not set in smb.conf?  Or if it is set in smb.conf, what is the actual setting being used?


Please do not open a new thread on the same subject.

type 'cat /etc/samba/smb.conf' in a terminal

then cut & paste the ouput into a reply to this thread.

It might also help if you tell us how you 'mount' the share.
