I am running Samba 3.014a on a server running Fedora Core 3. The source was
compiled with ACL support. When I modify files with various permissions using
notepad on a Windows XP machine, the permissions on the files change in weird
ways. The following happens: Files with 0666 permissions change to 0766 after a
modification is made to the file, 0664 is changed to 0766, 0660 is changed to
0762, 0644 is changed to 0766, 0640 is changed to 0762, and 0600 is changed to
0722. The configuration file looks like:
# Global parameters
workgroup = IAT
server string = Exeter
security = SERVER
password server = 10.0.0.22
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
load printers = No
printcap name = /etc/printcap
dns proxy = No
cups options = raw
comment = PPower Public Share
path = /tas/ppower-pub
read only = No
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
Is this supposed to happen?
Thanks for any help.
