unix group in windows server


In my centos server , there is a folder shared to windows via share , it was setup by pervious colleagues.

I just find that in windows side , the shared folder properties show that in security tab "Group or user Name" , one user called "root(Unix Group]\root) , but I can't find ( by search )this user in windows server , how can I add this user ?

#vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
path= /ori/dataa

browsable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = ori-user
read only = no
create mask = 777
force create mode = 777
directory mask = 775
force directory mode = 775

Your samba client (which is windows) should access the share as ori-user.

Generally, from windows, go to run (Win+r) then type the share name [syntax -> \\server.fqdn\sharename]. If all goes well, it should ask you for credentials, where you enter the credentials for samba user (ori-user in your case). A file explorer should ten open listing the available contents of the share.

It is also possible to assign a windows style drive letter to the samba share (often Z:).

No idea how to check on windows, but on a linux samba server (your centos machine) you may use smbclient or smbstatus -b utility.
Check this out too: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/pow...?view=win10-ps
