Hi....
I copied a CD from a PC to a mounted Solaris 2.5 volume (SambaServer), At the PC end the file names look fine.
but when I look at them from the Solaris 2.5 end, they are ALL in capitals, therefore the scripts won't run.
regards
P.S. Sorry about the points, thats all I got.

Hi ahoffmann...
You were right the case sensetivety was incorrect. Although I can now transfer files OK, I can't transfer/create/read directories from the PC. "It doesn't exist" or "Access denied" is the error.
/etc/passwd shell is /bin/sh, Permissions on the Sparc are OK, entry in groups is workgroup with ID of 14 for sys admin and "user" is a member, heres a copy of my smb.conf.......

;======================= Global Settings========================
[global]
   workgroup = WORKGROUP
   comment = Samba Server
   log file = /opt/ATsamba/var/log.%m  
max log size = 50
case sensitive = yes
short preserve case = no
preserve case = no
   lock directory = /opt/ATsamba/var/locks
   locking = yes
   share modes = yes
   security = user
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
;================ Share Definitions ===================
[homes]
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   writable = yes
[user]
   comment = user@sparc
   path = /export/home/user
   valid users = user
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = yes

heres some more points!

regards

What OS do you have on your PC? If it's a Windows system, you'd have to login using the username and password of "user" in "valid users=user".

If you're already doing that, try chmod g+s /export/home/user

Hope this helps!

Hi...
The question is now worth 70 x 4 = 280.
I'm logging into windows 95 with the same user and passwd
that the user would have to use if he logged into the sparc console.
Admintool (Solaris 2.6) will not let me make a group with a name longer than
8 chars, so I'm using work on both Os's as the group. I tried
chmod'ng and chgrp'ing, stopped samba. logged into win95 again started samba....etc...
But accessing folders says that it aint ther or don't exist.
Files are OK for reading/writing/creating. So why not the folders. It can't have anything to do with umask, as giving write acces to the group and giving the dir to the right group, I still
have the same prob.

BTW I made a change to smb.conf...
work = WORK

regards

ps solving this for me will get you  an "A". as I just want to
get this cd image over to the cdless sparc

Last try ; ) Found this in a newsgroup archive; apparently Windows automatically uppercases dir names. Try the ff. case config, i.e. comment out "case-sensitive = yes"; perhaps you might also need "short preserve case = yes"

mangled case = yes
; case sensitive = yes
default case = lower
preserve case = yes
