I am trying to get a samba share setup so that users have both read and write permissions. I thought that I would be able to do this by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf to add my share like so:
[CLOUD] path = /cloud writable = yes security = user valid users = neon, win write list = neon, win
and then running:
$ sudo systemctl restart smb.service $ sudo systemctl restart nmb.service
I can access my share from the two accounts, but neither can write. When I run testparam, some of the parameters are missing(
writable, but there is no explicit error.
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Processing section "[homes]" Processing section "[printers]" Processing section "[CLOUD]" Global parameter security found in service section! Loaded services file OK. Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions # Global parameters [global] dns proxy = No log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m max log size = 50 server role = standalone server server string = Samba Server workgroup = MYGROUP idmap config * : backend = tdb [homes] browseable = No comment = Home Directories read only = No [printers] browseable = No comment = All Printers path = /usr/spool/samba printable = Yes [CLOUD] path = /cloud read only = No valid users = neon win write list = neon win
I take this to mean that the
writable = yes parameter is not being recognized, but since there are no errors I have no idea why. Any suggestions as to what might be going on here?
I am using Arch.
