I applied a patch which falls back to opening/creating the file/dir
without WRITE_DAC if the first call failed. That's not quite optimal
but it works. Please check out the latest from CVS and test in your
scenario. For me it works now on the share as well as on local drives.
The downside is that it will not create any POSIX-like permissions on
the share. I'm just creating another solution which allows to give
normal POSIX permissions to the files, just like on a local drive.
I applied tha patch to CVS. The NtCreateFile call now gets the POSIX-like
ACL to create the file immediately with the correct permissions. Please
give it a try.
I can do that on Monday, hope it's sufficient.
Both setup.exe versions of Friday work! Great, thanks. And with both network drives.
There were a number of "Permission denied" messages in some of the screen logs, mostly during postinstall of terminfo.
And there was a failed attempt to create H:\/setup.log in one of them (last instance of \/ or \\ after transformation).

If it's interesting, I can provide additional information about security properties of the affected drives and dirs.
Kind regards,
