I did do the RTFM part
, and probably I looked over it after searching for 1 hour, but what I am looking for is the following:
I have a pre-installed Windows computer, with just one user named Owner (with empty password). The user of this computer has an account userX on the linux box. When trying to do smbpasswd -a Owner
, I enter no password, I get the error that no appropriate linux user has been found, which I understand. But neither this Windows computer can be reinstalled, nor is it a viable option to change the linux username. What I am looking for is a way to add a few shares for this user, with RW access and are being accessed/edited under the userX permissions in Linux, WITHOUT the user having to enter stuff in a password box in windows.
I am pretty much a noob at samba, so maybe there is an easier way than I am trying, so I appreciate all the help I can get.
