Question Samba read only subfolder.


I need to make a folder read only under a fileshare that has full permissions granted to it. The fileshare with full permissions is /u02/prodfileshare. The folder I need to make read only for everyone except the owner of the folder is called /u02/prodfileshare/EFT/purchases. Details of my configuration are below.

# ls -ld /u02/prodfileshare/
drwxrwxrwx 48 oraprod dba 2048 Sep 30 14:31 /u02/prodfileshare/

# ls -ld /u02/prodfileshare/EFT/purchases
drwxr-xr-x 2 oraprod dba 512 Oct 2 12:47 /u02/prodfileshare/EFT/purchases

workgroup = EXAMPLE.COM
server string = Samba Server
security = SHARE
guest account = oraprod
log file = /var/samba/log/log.%m
max log size = 50
dns proxy = No

comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No

comment = UAT Share
path = /u02/prodfileshare
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

Even though I have denied write access to group and other on the purchases folder itself using UNIX permissions, the users can still write to the folder when connecting through Samba. That's because the guest account is oraprod. This needs to be oraprod as an Oracle application accesses the folder as well. I have a test system where I can try different configurations if anyone has any ideas. If you need anymore information please let me know.

Thanks for your help,
