Subject Linux samba rights
Author Sándor Tamás (HostWare Kft.)
We have our project saving database every night automatically. It is done
partly by FB service, partly by our application. It first creates a backup
of database, then our application packs it with some sort of ZIP library. It
works great on Windows, but fails on some linux environment.
The bad thing, that when FB creates the backup file, it creates with root
rights (we tried to change the FB starting script, so the user would be
user1, but finally it always starts with root privileges). But when our
application tries to pack it on Windows, it tries to read it with user1
rights trough samba, so it can't do it, our backup process fails.

Any idea how to make this works? This is a very important part of our
application, it HAS to work.
