Description Vladimir Michl 2003-09-08 01:40:52 UTC
Hello developers,

I try use samba 2.2.8a and when I set nt smp support off,
I cannot create dirs on samba share from Windows 2000 (SP4).
Windows report some alert box.

On Samba 2.2.3a with the same config file it's OK.

Both samba packages is running on Debian 3.0 (woody). 2.2.3a - from stable 
release and 2.2.8a from http://people.debian.org/~peloy/samba (the same config 
as 2.2.3a)

Sorry mistake. Config directive is nt smb support not nt smp support.
Comment 2 Tim Potter 2003-09-08 22:35:41 UTC
Why have you turned nt smb support off in the first place?  It's an option only
really useful for development and you should not need to change it.

setting nt smb support = no is an unsupported configuration
(which is why the option has been removed from the 3.0 tree).

I turn this option off, because on exported directory run some application
writen in Delphi and using BDE (Borland Database Engine). If this option is
on, Application work under Windows 9x, but not work under Win2k (application
halt before start).

Author of application tell me that oplocks and level2 oplocks must be off on
exported dir.

I try samba options and nt smb support resolve Win2k problem. Application
now run under Win2k and Win9x. But side effect of this is, that users under
Win9x not see directories in explorer, they see only regular files.

I don't know if problem is in Samba or in application. The problem is, that
I cannot replicate application error state here on my place of work.

Thanks for response.

Can you file a new bug about this problem?  It sounds like there is a bug in
Samba.  If you can get a debug level 10 log of your delphi application not
working that would be great!
