Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12783
Samba or quota problem - for WinNT 4.0 also (very ambiguous)

All pardons for the re-post on the message regarding Redhat6.2 and samba
2.0.7 with quotas enabled on a file system.
It appears that if a quota limit has been reached on a samba share, and a
new file addition is attempted - the Samba server correctly states
that "Error, disk is full" - but upon refreshing the folder, the file
appears to be there in it's enitirety. This is not so - only the portion
of the file that manages to fit on the remainding space is written - but
samba reports it back to be of the original size. Logging in under the
appropriate account name would confirm this - linux reports that the file
is indeed of it's intended size. But the file is NOT of the intended size,
rather it's just a name!!! Running a quotacheck -v /whateverthefilesystem
I've installed Samba 2.0.7 (and even 2.0.6) and the same thing happens.
Just for my own piece of mind, I downloaded the Solaris Sparc version of
2.0.7 and it worked like it should. Please note that, I also downloaded
the source and compiled it myself (even tried disabling --quota-support)
to no avail. I've only tried this on WinNT4 clients, using SP's ranging
from 4 to 6a, and all appear to have the same trouble. I've also tested
Win2K and the same thing happens.
I apologise for this post if a suitable solution is out there.
Distribution used was Redhat 6.2 - ISO image download from mirror site.
Samba versions tried were 2.07-4 (both - Samba.org and redhat/updates)
