...is it possible? not IMNSHO.
today i've spent more than half an hour with the support because in
the last weeks dbworks give us plenty of sql errors of the "S1000"
family. they're related to problems when writing to a file "wrong
bookmark", "missing record", "cannot delete record" and so on.
we've been using a samba file server since 1998 and never had a
problem. we've recently --few months ago-- upgraded to samba 3 due to
a number of reasons and haven't had problems with that. from few weeks
ago on, we've begun getting all these S1000 errors, which make swx
crash and don't let us work.
all i've been able to be told is that dbworks doesn't support samba:
"a standard microsoft is required".
first question: what's a microsoft standard?
second question: we can't move to a san/nas because it doesn't carry a
third question: why did it run flawlessly --well, flawlessly... let's
say it ran-- until now and now gives us problems witnout having
*i'm* the sysad and know nothing changed in the last few months.
no read only files --"create mask = 0777" in smb.conf and chmod'ed -R
0777 our shared directory--, no restrictions on shared directories.
anybody could delete the whole tree without any control.
at the moment we're still using .mdb file, which is something around
15mb after "tools/compact database" in access.
next week i'm moving to msde, but i have to arrive at next week still
alive and with 4 engineers working.
thanks in advance.
