Samba Share Permissions Issue on NAS

Using a Linksys NSS6000 we've had multiple issues when using the admin share so we can see all the shares.

- First, when mounted, it shows only having 128KB of space.

- Second, all files are created with permissions 766 even though their share create masks show as 0776.

Below is the code for the admin shares and one of the shares in question. The quicker the better!
[storage]
comment=Adminstrative Share of NAS Storage
browseable=no
writable=yes
admin users=admin
path=/mnt
create mask=0776
veto files=/.config/
delete veto files=yes
 
[marketing]
path=/mnt/RAIDA/storage/marketing
comment=Marketing & New Business
browseable=yes
write list="@employees","@partners"
admin users=admin
create mask=0777
directory mode=0777
force directory mode=0
read only=no
public=no
available=yes

Dan,

Linksys calls it an admin only share but we're actually intending to have the users map it so they can see all shares. Then they can only access the shares they have rights to.

I'll give your suggestion a shot!

About create mode, try: force create mode = 0775

Also, understand that "force directory mode=0" will effectively deny directory creation (users can create them, but then will have no permissions). The "force directory mode=0" will override your "directory mode=0777" (which should be "directory mask", but it's OK because Samba will take either).

Along with dainok's example (change "create mask=0776" to "force create mode=0775"), that should resolve some of your issues.

... BUT: If this is TRULY an "admin only" share, why not use:

force user=admin
force create mode=0700

???

Just my 2-cents worth...
