Question Samba and access rights


Hi

I've got a Samba 2.2.3a on a suse 8.0 machine. There ist a folder 'user' which is mapped to every xp-client logging into samba (via netlogon the folder is mapped to the xp-clients). so far everything works fine. Now, if the user 'test' has logged on his computer and creates a folder 'testfolder' on the share 'user', he is the owner of this folder. Other users that are in the same group as 'test' can read and execute, but not write. I'd like everybody who's in the same group as 'test' to be able to read/write/execute things.
How can i get this work? any ideas?

thx
schaf

Hello.

On idea may be to allow the share to be written to. So in the

[user]

section of the smb.conf file, you may add the following:

[user]
read only = no
writeable = yes

This would allow writability but would not solve your access problem. To allow a group to access a samba share, I believe you must first change the group of the share folder to the "test group".

if the share [user] were located at

/export/samba/windows

then you could do a

chgrp testgroup /export/samba/windows
chmod 770 /export/samba/windows

That would solve the Linux permission problem assuming that all the users in the group "testgroup" were registered as such in the

/etc/group

file. Samba seems to get all of its permission information either directly or indirectly from the /etc/group file or the /etc/passwd file. Then you should be able to specify that this group is a valid user for the share by adding another line:

[user]
...
...
read only = no
writeable = yes
valid users = @testgroup
