hi there !
I want to change a novell-netware server to a samba server, and
there i have a big problem with the file-permitions !
we use a big database-system. the clients searches for the
programs and for the data's on the same drive, so i must have one
share with different rights (rwx ... for data and rx for programs)
the directory structure is the following:
\flex31d ........ programs
\pps ....... datas
... the problem is, that if a windows-client uses the explorer, he can
in an easy-way delete move ... all the databse !
in the novell i deleted the file-scan permition for the vol1\pps .. so
each client could see an empty subdirectory of pps, but the
database could touch all the files in it.
i samba i tried the following:
\vol1\flex31d r-xr-x--- root ppsuser
\vol1\flex31d\file1 r-xr-x--- root ppsuser
\vol1\pps rwxrw---- root ppsuser
\vol1\pps\fileb rwxrwx--- root ppsuser
..... in this example, i can't touch the file fileb as a memeber of the
ppsuser group ?!
