One of our Windows Administrators set up a username with an apostrophe (
single quote ) contained within the username on our Windows NT server ( It
is truly amazing that Windows NT User administrator allowed this *$?!& ). I
am trying to grant access to a samba share to this individual, but do not
know how or if it is possible since he has a single quote contained within
Does anyone know if the standard backslash will work?
For Example, if the Windows login id is "d'obrien" , can I put the entries
in smb.conf as "d\'obrien".
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
