I've been seeing a potential issues in large-scale
implementations of samba as a fileserver in a Windows-environment:
- permissions (inheritance)
I've also seen some other people mention this issue.
Say a user want to edit his web-pages in ~/public_html.
In this particular directory, the permissions should be at least
0755 so that the web-server can read them. Also, the user want to
have some private file in ~/private, etc.
Now, how can one acomplish that samba handles this securely?
(I know this is not a samba-issue, but samba should be
able to handle it...)
Say I have a big sharing named [data]. Because I do not want to map
150 different sharings (yes... that's how it would be if I made each
individual area a sharing in itself..) so I want [data], with
it's sub-directories to be readable only to people with permissions.
How can I accomplish that...?
Does anyone have any good ideas..? Could one make samba support a
'default permissions' settings as WinNT has, which samba then saves in a
