log in script question

Hi Tony,

The only way that I can think of to achieve something like this is by
writing a server-side script that creates a logon script on the fly
based on the username given as an argument.  Then add in smb.conf

   logon script = logon.bat
   preexec = /path/to/the/script %u

and have the script create a file named 'logon.bat' when the user logs
in.  This way you can have the script check if the user is member of a
certain Unix group, and if so, have it add a line like "net use X:
\\path\to\group\share" in the 'logon.bat' file.  If you're familiar with
Python, this can be done by calling

import grp

which returns a list of users who belong to the group named
'name-of-group'.  The rest is just a matter of coding.

Hope this helps.
