Well, I thought I knew Samba permissions, but I guess I don't.
Currently, any user that has an account on the Samba server has access
to the share "Accounting".
So, let's say I have user1, user2, user3, user4
I have added user1, user2 and user3 to the accounting group. user4 is
not a member of accounting.
On the server itself (not for Samba), I set up permissions for the
folder as 774 for all directories and files therein. User/group
permission are set as admin.accounting
The samba section for this share reads:
comment = Accounting
path = /home/accounting
read only = No
create mask = 0770
force create mode = 0770
security mask = 0770
directory mask = 0770
force directory mode = 0770
directory security mask = 0770
inherit permissions = Yes
If any local user access this share, they also automatically become part
of the accounting group (as far as samba is concerned).
Now, if I add a line "valid users = user1, user2, user 3" then of
course, just they can get in. But that doesn't seem to be the right
solution. The right solution would be to permit only accounting group
users into the folder. What am I doing wrong?
