Description Peter Rindfuss 2005-03-22 03:38:46 UTC
After upgrading our Suse Linux 9.2 / Samba 3.011 server to Samba 3.012 with no
configuration changes, shares could be mounted from Windows XP but contents
where not visible anymore. I had to set "hide special files = no" in order to
see files and directories again. "hide special files" was globally set to "yes"

Partial smb.conf:
	create mask = 0700
	directory mask = 0700
	ea support = Yes
	map acl inherit = Yes
	hide unreadable = Yes
	hide special file = Yes (3.011) / No (3.012)
	map archive = No
	mangled names = No
	store dos attributes = Yes

	comment = Network Logon Service
	path = /wzb/netlogon
	guest ok = Yes
	browseable = No

	comment = WZB File Server Share
	path = /wzb/samba
	read only = No
	inherit permissions = Yes
	inherit acls = Yes
	veto files = /.*/
