The problem that I'm running into is that the users can see the data but can't write to it since Windows isn't aware of the user. How can I make this work? Right now I am mounting a drive to the Windows share and then sharing that mount point from the Linux box. What am I doing wrong? (Outside of using Windows 2003 for the NAS) Ideas?
Sure - the NAS Appliance should have SFU - Services for Unix running.
Create the shares on the NAS for Unix - mount them via NFS on your
RedHat server and set up your samba shares.
In my setup, I used Samba as a PDC and the Windows Appliance is joined
as a member server. I am using openldap. Since the NAS is a member
server, I can have the Windows users connect directly to the NAS (which
is what I ended up doing because there was a little too much latency
sharing via NFS to Linux and offer the samba shares out to the users)
