samba privs; unix extensions = no

February 22nd, 2008

Here’s the problem: If a folder on a samba (3.0.28, but any 3.0.2x should be the same) share is 700 and has a non-root owner, even samba admin users will not be able to access the folder from the Finder in Mac OS X 10.5.2. The solution? Turn off ‘unix extensions’ in the server’s smb.conf.
