Description aaron_wilcox 2008-10-08 16:28:49 UTC
When trying to write an ODF file to a SAMBA network share where the path is specified as an URI (ie.: \\<server name>\<share name>\<file name>) OpenOffice can neither create a new file nor save a file that was opened from this location. Exporting the file to the same location using a non-ODF format works, as does saving to a Windows drive letter that has been mapped to the network share. Accessing a Windows network share using a URI works normally.

I cannot confirm it. I can read/write the files on the Samba share without problems using WinXP dialog and using OOo dialog as well. It works both in OOo2.4.1 and OOo3.0rc4. Which OS do you use exactly? Does the path contains any special characters? Are you sure you have the rights on that folder? Does this happen to all kind of documents or only for example spreadsheets?

1) I first identified the problem on a Win2K PC running OOo 2.4.1. I confirmed that a nearby WinXP PC running OOo 2.3.0 does the same thing. 2) The file path does not have any special characters (or even spaces). 3) I used cygwin to check my permissions on the share, I'm the owner of the folder and I have read/write permission (ie.: ls -l gave "-rw-r--r-- 'Aaron Wilcox'...."). 4) Both Writer and Calc were affected, but only if trying to write ODF documents. Calc could not write a spreadsheet to the share in ODS format, but would happily export the same spreadsheet to XLS in the same location.
