Hello, I've got a new FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE installation, and Samba's vfs_notify_fam appears to be broken. I think it's somehow confusing uid/username between root and the given login. I'm not certain which forum this belongs in, or if it belongs on Samba's bugtracking. Configuration is simple: Code: # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN (192.168.122.20) # Date: 2012/02/26 02:54:28 [global] workgroup = SKYHAWK server string = FreeBSD CIFS Server pam password change = Yes log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 socket options = SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 load printers = No preferred master = Yes dns proxy = No wins support = Yes idmap config * : backend = tdb [software] comment = Software Installers path = /data/software valid users = @software-ro read only = No hide dot files = No vfs objects = notify_fam, zfsacl When I connect to \\pegasus\software as user skyhawk, this directory is created in /tmp drwx------ 2 skyhawk wheel 2 Feb 26 02:53 fam-root/ And /var/log/samba/log.orion contains the following lines Code: Socket directory /tmp/fam-root has different owner Failed to remove unsafe path /tmp/fam-root Installed port is samba36-3.6.3. Ports tree is up to date via portsnap and portupgrade -a has nothing to do. I'm out of ideas, and any input would be appreciated.
