Description Felix Miata 2003-11-04 23:21:12 EST
Description of problem:
Using same /etc/samba/smb.conf file as used before replacing shrike
with test3, and the same as currently used successfully in SusE (same
machine) and Mandrake (different machine) in their samba 2.2.x
versions, W2K can both browse and read shared files and directories,
but OS/2 can only read directories, not files, always getting an
access denied when attempting to do so.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create share of Linux resource on the OS/2 box
2.browse the share
3.try to copy a file to a local destination
Actual results:
file access denied

Expected results:
file successfully copied

Additional info:
If there are clues to solving this in /var/log/samba/* or man samba,
I'm missing them.

Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2004-11-30 11:13:19 EST
Can you confirm that this is still a problem with the recently released 3.0.9 
Comment 2 Felix Miata 2004-11-30 12:02:57 EST
Not until I get a chance to move from FC2 to FC3, maybe not until after Christmas. 
Comment 3 Jay Fenlason 2004-11-30 12:08:40 EST
I released 3.0.9 rpms for fc2 too, so you don't need to reinstall the whole 
box, just update the Samba packages. 
Comment 4 Felix Miata 2005-01-02 20:24:04 EST
No improvement as of samba-3.0.10-1.fc3
Comment 5 Felix Miata 2005-01-02 20:54:41 EST
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1979 is the closest open
upstream bug I could find
Comment 6 Felix Miata 2006-11-07 10:39:30 EST
I cannot duplicate the problem in 3.0.23c-2 (FC6).
Comment 7 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 05:32:33 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 8 Felix Miata 2007-01-22 08:26:39 EST
comment 6 is the answer to comment 7
Comment 9 Simo Sorce 2007-03-14 11:28:45 EDT
seem 3.0.23c-2 already fixed this, closing, repoen if still present in current
