I have Samba set up on a Fedora 15 Machine. All looks well except that there's something nagging and I don't know what exactly is causing it.

I have a public share on the server which is accessible by everyone and its permissions is set to 777. When one person opens a document under that share and closes it after working, the other person who opens it can't edit or save it because it opens in read only and shows that it's still open on another computer.

What might be causing this and how can I resolve this?

When does the second person open the document? While the first one has it stil open, or only after the first one closed it? –  Baarn Sep 5 '12 at 21:27

You need to define create mask and perhaps the force user and/or force group options for that share in smb.conf.
