comment = Sales department
path = /home/office/sales
valid users = @sales, ries, admin
write list = @sales, ries, admin
force group = sales
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 0770
This is what I use as a example
Inportand to me is the force group directive. THis makes sure that
every file and directory has writting as group SALES.
Everybody in the write list as Read write acces to the sales share.
Everybody in the valid users list has read acces to the sales share.
@sales means everybody in the sales group
So In this example the user ries and admin my write and read in the
I think this is what you mean.
