    55'''Q: The current utilities packaged with Samba server for eCS (OS/2) only have a limited feature  set. How can I configure all the other features without messing with commandline utilities?'''[[BR]]
     
    2727----
    2828'''Q: I see a completely erratic behaviour, when I try to add users to groups - I always get NT_ACCESS_DENIED errors, although credentials should be sufficient. Sometimes the user appears magically after the next operation. What is wrong here?'''[[BR]]
    29 '''A:''' The problem is located in the group file and in the addusertogroup.cmd and deluserfromgroup.cmd scripts. The userlist '''MUST''' be terminated by a comma. Examples of the group file syntax floating around neglect this issue, and the scripts mentioned above do not provide the comma either (updated revisions are available  [http://members.aon.at/herwig.bauernfeind/samba/files/group-20080610.zip here]).[[BR]][[BR]]
     29'''A:''' The problem is located in the group file and in the (now deprecated) addusertogroup.cmd and deluserfromgroup.cmd scripts. The userlist '''MUST''' be terminated by a comma. Examples of the group file syntax floating around neglect this issue, and the scripts mentioned above do not provide the comma either (use the smbusers package published [http://members.aon.at/herwig.bauernfeind/samba/index.html here ] to deal with users and groups ).[[BR]][[BR]]

    4848'''Q: Does Samba really need this libc063x.dll, I have libc063.dll anyway? I want to get rid of one of these two files! This is the DLL hell! '''[[BR]]
    49 '''A:''' Samba comes with an enhanced version of [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] named libc063x.dll. In order to run Samba successfully you must have this file, the standard [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] does not work for Samba. The two DLLs are not interchangeable and you cannot just rename one or the other. Please note that you also must not rename libc063x.dll to [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] in order to use the enhanced DLL with other applications. This will not work, too.[[BR]][[BR]]
    50 ''Note: Most Samba builds already come with libc063x.dll], but some of the more recent builds did not.''[[BR]]

    5150''Note: Samba version 3.0.30 and later come with libc064x.dll. So libc063x.dll is obsolete and can savely be removed from your system. You must '''NOT''' delete [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi libc063.dll] however!

    7776'''Q: Is the Samba Server for eCS (OS/2) able to store OS/2 extended attributes properly?'''[[BR]]
    78 '''A:''' Yes. Recent Samba builds can do that nicely. You have to add the following statement to your smb.conf in order to enable extended attributes:
     77'''A:''' Yes, by and large. It was just recently discovered that Samba still has difficulties with very large extended attributes (slightly below the 64K maximum size). Besides that, extended attributes work nicely. You have to add the following statement to your smb.conf in order to enable extended attributes:
