Soory thay I send this again bat I recived the answer corapted
I am trying to map NT groups to Unix groups via the username map file so
that I can grant access to Samba shares simply by adding users to a
group on the NT side. On the Unix side, the group has permissions to
the directory, but the user has not been added to the actual UNIX group.
I am having trouble getting this to work and the documentation seems
to be giving me conflicting information. I first looked in the O'Reilly
book "Using Samba" that came with the distribution. In section 220.127.116.11
"username map" it says: "You can also map NT groups to one or more
specific Unix groups using the @ sign." In the HTML documentation, it
says something completely different. In the section on "username map"
it says: The list of usernames on the right may contain names of the
form @group in which case they will match any UNIX username in that
group". Further down it continues: "Or to map anyone in the UNIX group
"system" to the UNIX name "sys" you would use:
Our username.map simply looks like:
group = NTGROUP
When I look hat the smbstatus I see that the uid and gid are the same
under the uid
We have samba a Linux (Debian) with samba 2.0.7.
Its only work if I force group but then I loos my security
Please if you can advise in any way.
