I'm having a nightmare - everytime I try to set the Samba Services Server to user for security it keeps defaulting back to share. I've been in and edited the smb.conf file under global to security = user but it defaults back to share within 40 seconds- furthermore the smb.conf file changes back too and the line i've added is no longer there. Please help users are giving me a hard time! sad.gif

Hi,

you could check if there is a cron job running every 40 mins and changing things back to default.
crontab -l
or maybe you have tripwire or something like that installed ?

No tripwire installed that I'm aware of. However we have had a lot of problems with making sure that all files remain read, write and execute. I'm wondering if there is a recursive command to ensure that they stay this way that is running in the background. smile.gif

Hi,

if there is something checking things in the background I suppose that it is a good thing to search trough the log files in /var/log/ and search for the string smb.conf in each log file, maybe you can find out what is changing it, and then you'll be able to do something about it.
