OK, this may be an idiotic question, but here goes:
With winbind, I can now share files to NT/PC users who don't have a
corresponding UNIX account. However, I haven't figured out the permissions
management yet. I was playing with granting explicit write permission for a
samba share to an NT user that was not in my UNIX password file. Then I
tried granting write permission to anyone in my NT domainusers group. The
only way it seemed I could give that user write permission was to open world
write permission to the directory on the UNIX side. I didn't seem to be
able to manage the permissions from inside the smb.conf file ...
Am I missing something here? Perhaps I just don't understand the precedence
of the configuration settings such as read only, write list, etc. and what
the effective result is when those settings are combined ...
Clarification or a pointer to a discussion of this topic would be most
