I'm working with Samba 3 on my Gentoo box. So far setting up
andconfiguring Samba w/ldap and krb5 support is pretty straight
forwared. My Gentoo box is now a member server of the domain, shows up
in Active Directory.
I can get a kerbereos ticket from our W2K PDC and connect to windows
shares with as little effort as:
smbclient //server/share -k
Now I'm ready to start moving into setting permissions on directories
and files for my Samba shares.
I did read chapters 12 & 13 of the how to but I'm still stuggling.
So far I have:
1. created a share:
comment = Help your self
browseable = yes
writable = yes
path = /mnt/windows/Software/
#nt acl support = true
public = yes
write list = @domadm
2. I created a user named jon and have added him to the domadm group also did an smbpasswd -a.
Jon set his linux password to match his windows password - I don't know if this is critical...
3. The unix permisions on /mnt/windows/Software:
drwxr--r-- 57 tim root 32768 Oct 8 00:49 Software
4. I have tried to give ownership of the /mnt/windows/Software directory to domadm but I cannot-
It comes back with:
bash-2.05b$ chgrp domadm Software
chgrp: changing group of `Software': Operation not permitted
I did this as root. The partition is a FAT32 Partition.
Now as tim from my windows xpbox I can browse the Linux Software share but jon can not!
I have jon in the domadm group, the share is browseable...what am I missing?
I love Samba - but I really need to nail down how I'm going to implement permissions on directories and files!
