Description of problem: After Samba was upgraded this morning (4/10/2007), the
Windows computers (primarily XP SP2) could not access most network shares
(common or home)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.24-4
How reproducible: Unknown - have only one system running Core 5, and can't waste
customer's time monkeying with reinstalls. Downgrading to 3.0.24-3 fixed the
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to 3.0.24-4
2. Try accessing network shares
Actual results: can't reach network shares
Expected results: should be able to reach network shares
Additional info: Strangely, 1 folder in 1 share _could_ be accessed, but files
inside folder not visible. Folder ownership and permissions are identical to
other folders in share. Selinux is disabled (and has been for some time due to
conflict with Samba), so is assumed to not be the problem.
Other updates this morning were popt, libattr and libacl
Sorry but this is a known issue. We had to change a bad default set upstream in
The easy fix is to just restart your windows client.
Otherwise if you can't restart the clients you can set root msfds = yes in
smb.conf and restart samba.
But this may have other subtle consequences that's why we changed the default
back to root msdfs = no
