Hi Metze,

Then I guess the smb.conf html page should be adapted accordingly:

- From smb.conf.5.html:

admin users (S)

This is a list of users who will be granted administrative privileges on the
share. This means that they will do all file operations as the super-user
You should use this option very carefully, as any user in this list will be
able to do anything they like on the share, irrespective of file

Default: no admin users

Example: admin users = jason

See what I mean?
