Samba, can not delete files


I am sharing a direcory on my linux server,

        comment = Pervasive document Shared
        path = /usr/local/psql/data
        force user = psql
        force group = pvsw
        guest ok = yes
        writeable = yes
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777

With the previous settings I am able to create files, rename files but not delete files...
users that connect to this folder belong to pvsw group

Do you know why ? and how to fix it?

Thank you

What are the permissions of the directory /usr/local/psql/data and the files on Linux? Have you verified that the create and directory masks are working as expected?

Hi Gary,

thank you for your reply, here are my asnwers

# ls -l /usr/local/psql
total 48
drwxr-xr-x    4 psql     pvsw         4096 Apr 19  2004 bin
drwxrwxrwx   25 psql     pvsw         8192 Apr 25 10:38 data

ls -l /usr/local/psql/data
total 1667468
-rwxrwxrwx    1 psql     pvsw        37888 Nov 30 11:33 02610760
-rwxrwxrwx    1 psql     pvsw        18944 Nov 17 11:19 17707F10
drwxrwxrwx    3 psql     pvsw         4096 Mar 17 13:44 ANNA

I believe everything is running fine and rights are correct...


This is what I have setup on my Samba server.

        comment = Shared Directory
        path = /data/shared
        guest ok = no
        browseable = yes
        writeable = yes
        create mask = 777

My users can do everything in this directory.
Here's a link to someone else that had the same problem.

Basically his /var filesystem was full.
