I recently created a Samba (v3.0.14a-2) server on a Fedora CORE box
In a samba log file on the server I am getting a "Couldn't find group"
On my client, I am getting "system error 2220 has occurred" "the
group name could not be found".
The problem seems to be this entry in my "smb.conf"
force group +xuser
...excerpt from smb.conf follows...
comment = Lotus
path = /apps/lotusdir
browseable = yes
force create mode = 0774 ;see pg184 of samba manual
force directory mode = 0774 ;see pg184 of samba manual
create mask = 0774 ;see pg184 of samba manual
directory mask = 0774
force group = +xuser ;see pg183 of samba manual
public = no
valid users = @xuser
write list = @xuser
writeable = yes
For years, I've been using this smb.conf file (with a few minor
changes) with an earlier version of Samba and Linux, with no problems.
I've tested this problem with an XP client and also a Win98 client.
Both clients have problems.
I set the debug level to "3" and was getting NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_GROUP
