Hi Matt,
I haven't tried this myself, but someone else on the list swears that this
will work:

I just find use valid users = ' @"DOMAIN\Domain Users" ' will work.

Hope this helps,

Subject: Spaces in groupname and winbind

When trying to limit access to a share with the parameter:
valid users= @DOMAIN+group name, winbind has problems parsing that name.

Is the group is "Ras Users" --

[2002/03/15 14:04:50, 5] rpc_parse/parse_prs.c:dbg_rw_punival(730)
          0030 buffer     :  . at .D.O.M.A.I.N.\.R.a.s.

I also tried the suggested fix of:

valid users= " "@DOMAIN+Group name" "

What would be the valid syntax to escape the space with winbind?
