I am pretty new to samba so if this is a newb question please forgive
me. I have my server up and running, have it authenticating through my NT
PDC and users who are not in the /etc/passwd file can access shares I
create are world readable. I have also copied over a coupe of users the
passwd file (with identical passwords) for the sake of testing. I would
really like to migrate all of my windows file servers over to a large samba
server but I am having trouble with permissions.
I realize the just the 744 bits (as of samba 2.0.5) have any meaning but I
am hoping there is a way to change the file permissions on the server
through the windows clients (if not preserve all together in
transfer). Ideally I don't want to have to create a new user on the Linux
box every time I create one on windows but I could live with that.
With the accounts that I have created duplicates for on Linux I can not
change the file security permissions (ie add user pjones as someone who can
read my file) is this a technical limitation or is there a hack around it?
Thanks for any help
