Description Fabiano Francesconi 2009-05-21 20:23:46 UTC
Don't know if is a problem related only to cifs/samba but this strange thing happen to me with a particular directory that I shared with Windows Vista.

The weird is that I shared a directory that has "Everyone" as co-owner role.
Well, Nautilus can access to it, can browse it, can delete/add/modify everything and everywhere *but* the root.
I'll drop you an example.

Windows Vista PC:
Shared directory: Music

Music content: directories [A] and [B]

smb:// is the link I give in Nautilus to access the shared resource.

I can do whatever I want but I can't create new folder, add files in that directory.
I can rename [A] to [WHATEVER_I_WANT] or [B] as well.
I can't create a [C] directory or add a song.mp3 file into the "root".

I thought that maybe there were a problem in the sharing: so I re did it. Nothing changed.

So I tried with the old-fashioned console way:
mount -t cifs // /mnt/cifs/ -o allow_others

"cd /mnt/cifs && mkdir C " and it worked. The directory has been created so.. what's going on?

I tried with another PC running Windows and it works flawlessy.

The real thing that scares me off is that I have 5 shared directories and this is the only that gives this problems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Access to smb://whatever

Actual Results:  
Can't create new folder in that path but can do whatever you want in any other dirs

Expected Results:  
Everything should work just as always

Can't say it anymore since very much changed in almost 8 months.

Mainly I've switched OS on my home-server and now it's running on a Gentoo machine so no more issues so far.

Said so, this bug should be closed.

thanks for the heads up.
