Hi Experts,

I have set up a new SAMBA server on CentOS 4.3 and migrated data from the old SAMBA Server to the new.

After migration all the files and folders appear read only from the client desktop computers.

The security on the folder is set to 770 with group read write permissions.

What could I be doing wrong?

Thanks,

Andrew

what authentication backend are you using ? ldap or smbpasswd ?

did you update the domain sid ?

increase the "log level" value in smb.conf and check your samba logs for any pointers.

Did you transfer the smb.conf as it is or recreated it.

This is generally what happens your default group (set in smb.conf) is different than your system gruop if it will be read / write you might try to change the directory permission with 1777 and then you will see with what owner the fie is created. If you have dirfferent users yhe "1" in the permisson ensures that user only delete their files.
