Following on from this - I can't get force group to
work at all in 2.0.5a. It completely ignores the line.
Any clues ?
This is my share setup.
By default users primary group is 'users'.
path = /samba/telco
force group = telco
force create mode = 0770
force directory mode = 0770
create mask = 0770
valid users = root, @telco
write list = root, @telco
guest ok = no
browseable = yes

Subject: Force group ?
I have a number of users with home directories
under /home/????. Their default group is users.
I need to make some of these directories available
for other users, so I've created a group that's actually
the same as the users name of their home directory.
drwxrwx... georgef georgef ......
Then, I add a bunch of users into that group in /etc/group.
It works and people can get to his home directory, but....
When another user saves a file into georgef's directory
it gets created with georgef's primary group which is 'users'
and I don't want that.
I've tried using
force group = %u or %U
in the samba config, but thinking again that won't work.
Anyone any ideas ?
