Just joined the list. The postings are very helpful
for me to implementing samba for my work place.
I am running samba 3.0.1 or RED HAT 9.0.
Does anybody know how to add Windows domain users to a
linux usergroup? My PDC is running Windows 2000. I do
not have permissions to create groups on the Windows
PDC. Windbind is working fine on the Redhat machine. I
can map to the linux samba server share "homes" with
the user, DOMAIN1\user1. But the users;
Domain1\user2,Domain2\user3, or Domain2\user4 can't
map to homes directory. I appreciate any help or
comments on adding Windows users to a unix group.
Below is my smb.conf and username map file.
# Global parameters
workgroup = DOMAIN1
server string = Samba Server
security = DOMAIN
username map = /etc/samba/users.map
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192
ldap ssl = no
idmap uid = 10000-12000
idmap gid = 10000-12000
path = /home
valid users = root, @managers, DOMAIN1\user1
admin users = root, @managers, DOMAIN1\user1
read list = root, @managers, DOMAIN1\user1
write list = root, @managers, DOMAIN1\user1
read only = No
My users.map file
all the users are part of the group "managers" in the
