the folder /var/www/web1 (in question) is owned by 'web1_joanne' in the group web1.
'smbusr' is a member of the 'web1' group.
It works fine when I conect using samba ie.. 'smb:\\192.168.3.19\web' but when I mount the share to my local directory tree using fstab, i loose write permissions.
My fstab entry is:
//192.168.3.19/www /web cifs user=smbusr%SMBPASS,uid=LOCALUSR,gid=LOCALUSRGRP 0 0
