After a while samba does not alove write access ???

Post by mad.. » Fri, 25 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Hi There, I have a weird problem with samba. After a while when I map
a network drive samba will not ask for a password, bu will map the
drive read-only. If I stop and start smb everything is fine again, I
will be prompted for the password, and have write access to the files.

When I log in to my Win95 box I log in as madsen, and I don't have any
problems mapping \\server\madsen, the problem is only when mapping say
\\serve\groupfiles. Sometimes I will be promptet for the groupfile
password and the everything is fine, but after a while I will not be
promptet, and I will get read-only access to the drive.

Here is my smb.conf

; The global setting for a RedHat default install
; Make sure and restart the server after making changes to this file,
; /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb stop
; /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start

   log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
   lock directory = /var/lock/samba

   comment = Home Directories
   writable = yes
   public = false

I use redhat 4.0 with samba-1.9.16p2-2

Any pointers will be apreciated

1. Need Write Access to Linux ext-fs from DOS/Win95!

Hi, there,

I tried to re-partition my SCSI HD during the weekend
to recover some space. Somehow, the partition number
for the two Linux partitions (from sda8 & sda9 to
sda6 & sda7). Now Linux won't boot.

I think I have to modify these two files:
(is there any files I have to modify?)

Of course, I don't have a Linux boot disk!
Is there any SW out there that allow me to edit these
files from DOS/Win95?

Can I jump to a shell from Redhat 6.1 installation

Thanks for your help!
