I'm running a Redhat 8.0 system with samba 2.2.7
I believe I have it correctly configured with winbind to authenticate users against a NT4 style domain (Active Directory in Mixed mode).
When I run the wbinfo -u, wbinfo -g they return with users and groups.
I just don’t know the correct way to create a directory on the Linux server with the correct permissions gid's & uid's so that I can configure them as samba shares.
If I create a directory off of / …. let say /testing….. what should the permissions be set to? What owner & group should it be in??
Pat, the Windows users and groups are dynamically added to the passwd and group file (it's been a while since I messed with this). You should be able to assign permissions just like a normal Unix user:
chown someuser somefile
Did you compile Samba with ACL support? Are you using a file system with ACL support?
