Unfortunately, I have a problem, writing to a samba share which I'm unable to solve.
My /etc/samba/smb.conf :
[global] workgroup = w server string = server security = user load printers = no log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 dns proxy = no printing = bsd printcap name = /dev/null disable spoolss = yes unix extensions = no # if I comment above line, I can write to /home/shareuser/writable follow symlinks = yes wide links = yes [writable] comment = test writable = yes valid users = shareuser path=/home/shareuser/writable
shareuser has valid passwd and smbpasswd (-a)
I mount the share like this:
mount -t cifs //server/writable mountpoint/ -o username=shareuser
unix extensions = yes
, I can write to the share.
unix extensions = no
, I can't write to the share.
What I try to achieve in the end, is to have a writable password protected share, which forwards file permissions to clients and also allows them to access directories and files which are symlinked into the share directory (both from linux and windows clients if that's even possible).
PS: I also posted this on stackexchange.com (http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions … n-smb-conf)
PPS: Since I'm using systemd without syslog I had to create the /var/log/samba directory before smbd logged anything.
Thank you in advance for any help
