Description Ralph Böhme 2020-05-14 13:56:22 UTC
The only two callers that pass a root_dir_fid != 0 are reply_ntcreate_and_X()
and call_nt_transact_create().

Both functions pass the relative wirename to filename_convert() which is wrong it is relative to root_dir_fid so filename_convert() will not be able to stat() the relative path and it's components.

As the only test I can find that uses a root dir_fid is raw.samba3rootdirfid and
that uses a handle on the share root which will work, the relative name hits the "creating file" codepath in unix_convert(), so the special testcase covered by the test works.

Have patch, need bugnumber...
