Description of problem:
After updating samba, some shares stopped behaving the way they did
before the update. The "write list" is not being honored anymore on
shares where both "force user" and "read only" are defined.
The bug is filed upstream (bug #1319) along with a patch.
The problem is present in FC 2 as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The bug is fixed for me as of samba-3.0.5-0pre1.0. Any chance of an
errata for FC1 when samba 3.0.5 final is out?
The magic 8-ball says "If 3.0.5 comes out before the EOL for FC1,
probably, otherwise, you'll have to ask the Fedora Legacy folks."
samba 3.0.6 is out and EOL for FC1 is only a couple of weeks away. The
rawhide package seems fine. If you decide to issue an errata I would
be very grateful. :-)
From the changelog of 3.0.6:
Common bugs fixed in 3.0.6 include:
o Schannel failure in winbindd.
o Numerous memory leaks.
o Incompatibilities between the 'write list' and 'force user'
o Premature optimization of the open_directory() internal
function that broke tools such as the ArcServe backup
agent, Macromedia HomeSite, and Robocopy.
o Corrupt workgroup names in nmbd's browse.dat.
o Sharing violation errors commonly seen when opening
when serving Microsoft Office documents from a Samba
o Browsing problems caused by an apostrophe (') in the
computer's description field.
o Problems creating special file types from UNIX CIFS
clients and enabling 'unix extensions'.
o Fix stalls in smbd caused by inaccessible LDAP servers.
o Remove various memory leaks.
o Fix issues in the password lockout feature.
