Subject: [Samba] How to control shell access by group?
Sorry if this is too newbie. I would appreciate any help.
I would like to control shell access by group so that I don't have to
add it to parameter "template shell: and give everyone that is
authenticated shell access. I am using winbind so I see every window
user when I do a "getent passwd" with /bin/null as their shell but I
don't know how to go and change that for an individual user because I
can't go into edit /etc/passwd and change it like I would for a normal
user. And it would be easier if I could just delete them out of a
windows group and then they wouldn't have shell access. Any help would
be appreciated. Now I know about the "add user script" and "add group
script" but they are already users with winbind so why would I want to
add a linux user account if it essentially already exists and if I use
"template shell" they can get in.
