Thread: [Samba] Common MS Office and samba file share issue

  1. [Samba] Common MS Office and samba file share issue

    Hi all,

    There are many posts on many lists about this issue but no definitive
    answers.

    For me the issue came up with a new server running CentOS 5 + samba
    3.0.35c + openldap.

    The recent postings I've seen always seem to have either RHEL 5 or
    CentOS 5 in common with the provided 2.6.18 kernel.

    The issue is .doc or .xls files saving and then producing an error about
    not being able to open the file for writing. Then it claims the file is
    locked by the user who just saved the file. It even occurs in users own
    home directories where no one else could have opened the file

    I've tried disabling kernel locks, oplocks, level2 oplocks, create mode
    =0660 and
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192
    SO_SNDBUF=8192

    All of which have been listed somewhere as fixes but do not help. I've
    been searching for a solution for nearly two months now.

    Can someone please tell me what it is????


    Thanks in advance

    Kevin Bedford

    Set force security mode = 0770 in the problematic share. This fix the
    bug... at least, works for me.
