Samba vs windows security


Hello all

I have a USB disk running fat32 file system...
It is currently running on a windows 2000 server but only USB 1.1 and we are now moving it to a server running Linux.

The linux server is currently authenticating users against our Windows 2000 domain controller for samba access and I can list the users in the Linux console by Wbinfo etc.

On the windows 2000 there are certain security settings on some folders/subfolders I would have to migrate to the Linux server as no users should notice any difrence.
Like certain users/groups on the windows 2000 domain controller that need certain type of access level to folders in the Samba share

How do I setup souch thing as severel groups having difrent folder permissions in Linux/Samba?

To be more specific:

How do I setup a folder permission on a sub folder in a Samba file share for several groups/users as the authentication is against a windows 2000 DC?

Samba is capable of operating as a member of a Windows domain. I think that the best place to look for up-to-the-minute information might be here...

Yes and it is already running as a windows domain member with winbind lookup against the DC...

I Will try to specify what I think I really need to know about

I must admit im pretty green around internal Linux user and group settings, so maby this is an area I need to investigate more.

Does anyone have information on how to add access permission for several groups on a single directory in Linux, checking it against a windows 2000 DC? Windbind? and?
Is it possibly at all to have multible groups with access rights to a folder in Linux?

You have to look up directory and file masks in SAMBA, so that Windows systems can save with out getting a message "Permission Not Permitted".

That would be the ACL?

As I read the Samba HOWTO there is no such real utility in linux however you can just use windows normal permission software on the folders and set its rights?

Nope you are wrong.

It is directory umask and file umask for SAMBA for the smb.conf file. The Windows permissions will not work on the SAMBA system because Linux permissions work differently.

So will have to set up the umask for Samba first before the windows ACL can be applied?
