    Samba write permissions

    I have a file server in my basement which has a share called "PhoneRecordings". This shared drive is supposed to hold recordings from my asterisk machine (phone system). It's legal in NJ to record calls.

    in my smb.conf file, I have the following:

    path = "/media/RAID/Phone System Calls - Backup"
    available = yes
    valid users = root server
    force user = root
    encrypt passwords = true
    browseable = yes
    security = user
    guest ok = no
    read only = no
    create mask = 0755
    writable = yes
    write list = server root

    The directory, subdirectories and files are all owned by root
    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Aug 17 17:23 2014

    for example.

    On the PBX machine, I have an entry in fstab:

    // /mnt/Phone cifs username=server,password=PASSWORD,iocharset=utf8,s ec=ntlm 0 0

    The drive shares correctly, but when a call comes in, Asterisk/PBX machine indicates a permissions failure:

    [2019-10-15 19:03:58] WARNING[5259][C-0000000a]: file.c:1229 ast_writefile: Unable to open file /mnt/Phone/2019/10/15/out-9177230665-1000-20191015-190358-1571180638.17.wav: Permission denied

    Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong? I really don't care that the machines are granting write permissions to a super user - the machines are behind 3 firewalls and if they get hacked I have bigger problems.
