hi all,
I am configuring a samba server version 2.2.7-security-rollup-fix, under redhat 8.0
I would like to configure which user have access to the home directory and which not
the smb.conf home configuration is:
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   valid users = +homeusr
   create mode = 0664
   directory mode = 0775

where homeusr group is the group of users that have home directory access, I also delete the home directory for the users that I do not give access
the problem is every user that connect to the samba linux box see a share with the user name (of course is not posible to access because the directory do not exists)
I would that only users with home directory access view the share to avoid confusions
any ideas about where is the problem?
