Further to this i have found a work around. I can put my .dst file on my PCs C: drive and share the folder across the network that way . . . . . . not ideal as file doesnt get backed up and my PC needs to be on.
I have been using Linux (samba) for CAD files now since 2003, with no problems. That is until last week. I am having issues with CentOS 6.2 running samba 3.5.10-114.
The sheetsets become locked for all but the file owner. This is the only person who is able to make changes.
Linux permissions for the DST file are 770, so any member of the same group shold be able to have full access to the DST file. If I use CHOWN on the linux server to change ownership of the DST, the new file owner can make changes, but nobody else
