Description Sandeep Tamhankar 2006-02-17 17:56:36 UTC
CreateDirectory of a path name that exists on a Samba server (as a simple file) fails with the wrong code.

Steps to reproduce:
1. From a Windows machine, map a network drive to a Solaris Samba share.
2. Create a file "foo" on the share.
3. In a cmd window, do a 'md foo' when cwd is the directory containing the 'foo' file created earlier.

Expected result:
A subdirectory or file foo already exists.

Actual result:
The directory name is invalid.

I wrote a c++ program that just does the CreateDirectory and reports the error code from GetLastError.  The correct code is 183 (ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS).  The code I got on 3.0.21b is 267.

I tested against a 3.0.10 Solaris Samba installation, and that correctly returned 183 as well.  I also tested against a Windows file server, just to be sure that 183 is the correct response, and that worked correctly as well.

This fixes the problem for me. It'll be in 3.0.21c. Thanks,
Jeremy.
