I take it from this by "read-only" you mean you can read the samba share from
side but you can't write. And this has been the case since "forever". Yes?
Correct. /etc/fstab does: //192.168.2.8/smbBOX48 /mnt/box48/ cifs
defaults,password=smbpassword 0 0
but I still have to mount manually after boot: # mount
//192.168.2.8/smbBOX48/ /mnt/box48/ and enter the smb password.
After which I can view directories in /mnt/box48/ with the Thunar file
manager and view files with VLC, whatever. Also I am unablt to access
"box48 with an iPad.
Also, iPhones had no issue until recently. Yes?
Yes, until the other day when she created a new directory from an iPhone
and was unable to save a group of photos to it, it seems that after that
she could not save anything or create another directory, as I understand
the problem. However I was ablr=t to load put a .mov clip in the
directory from my Fedora30 using sftp.
Now miraculously, it appears that the Samba server is accessible from
her iPhone and allowing to save some files.
Well, sounds more like a samba configuration issue than anything. Have you looked at
samba logs at all?
I am not aware of a Samba log, where do I find it?
[root@bobg Desktop]# ll /var/log/samba/
drwx------. 2 root root 4096 Jun 20 15:42 old
And it is empty:
[root@bobg Desktop]# ll /var/log/samba/old
I have been working on this all day and so far the above is what I have
It seems that when a directory is created from the iPhone it is being
created read only. /am trying changing permissions and willsee if that
affects that problem, probably not itsounds like an smb config problem
butI thought I have it all set right? More to do ...
Thanks for the help,
