Directory created as "read only"

    I've noticed that whenever a directory is created in a shared directory from within an application, the newly created directory is marked as "read only." By this I mean if you are going to save a file while running a windows app and decide to create a new directory (folder) within the mounted shared directory, the new directory/folder has the "read only" bit set and nothing can be written to the directory. Even changing the bit within windows doesn't allow a file to be written there.

    I had a similar problem when I tried to store an Oracle 9i DB on a shared directory--couldn't get it to work.

    I'm running 3186 but this was true in 3170.

    Anyone else see this?
