#28 closed defect (invalid)

'write list' option - users in the write list do not get write access on a read only share

Reported by: guest Owned by: diver
Priority: Feedback Pending Milestone: Samba Server for eCS (OS/2) 1.1.x
Component: Samba Server Version: 3.0.25b
Keywords: write list read only Cc: herwig.bauernfeind@…

Description

I try give anybody read-only access for "myshare", and write access to vipuser:

[myshare]

path = D:\path\dir read only = yes write list = vipuser

But vipuser cannot write... ("write list = @vipgroup" do not worked too)

Change History (11)

There are missing EOLs in example:

[myshare]

path = D:\path\dir
read only = yes
write list = vipuser

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

That is the expected behaviour according to the Samba manual - a write list to a read only ressource does not make sense. RTFM please.

  • Cc herwig.bauernfeind@… added
  • Keywords write list read only added
  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Summary changed from 'write list' option to 'write list' option - users in the write list do not get write access on a read only share

While parts of the Samba docs are ambigous - the scenario is a valid one and the defect is reproducible.

Users that should have write access to a read only share can neither create new files nor edit present files.

I think this is working as designed. To do what the user wants, consider a share like the following example: ; A publicly accessible directory, but read only, except for people in ; the staff group [public]

comment = Public Stuff path = u:/ public = yes writable = yes printable = no write list = @staff

This share is public (& read only) to all users, but only writable to the users/groups listed in write list

hmm still no decision if it's working as designed or if it's a bug.
