The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1369
the directive "write list" does not ignore the "read only" directive when "force user" is set
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:27:54 UTC
Consider the following configuration section:
path = /srv/www
valid users = +FERM
write list = +FERM
force user = webuser
force group = www
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 0770
browseable = No
This doesn't allow write access to anybody in FERM group, the share is
considered to be read only by Samba 3.0.4.
Note: Samba 3.0.2a works fine with the same configuration.
For 3.0.4 to work one must add: "read only = No". Then the share is considered
writeable. This contradicts the documentation, that states that "write list"
directive should ignore the "read only" directive.
The "write list" DOES ignore the "read only" directive (i.e. works properly),
if the directive "force user" is removed!
