Description Ralph Böhme 2016-01-21 08:14:26 UTC
Reportedly, copying data from a Win 7 client's CD drive to a Samba share can fail.

It turns out the Windows client sends a directory creation request with an initial allocation size > 0 which is currently rejected in create_file_unixpath() with NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED.

Windows behaviour is to allow the directory creation, ignoring the allocation size.

Patch to follow-up.
