It should be a Samba inherent bug. Simply add "read only = no" to the Samba
configuration file, which is the default as specified, and then the users
listed in "user admins" will have the expected privileges.

Correct me please if I neglect something.

Dear all,

When I create a share with the "admin users" permission (see smb.conf)
and map a drive to it from win2k, it does not allow me to:

Edit files
Create files
Remove files
Add Directories
Remove Directories

Each time it gives me a permissions error.

And I ever tried adding user1 to the UNIX group that maps to the Windows
Domain Admins group:

net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=admins

Then add "user1" to the admins group in the /etc/group file, but it still
doesn't work.

Could anybody shed some light? Many thanks,


security = user
valid users = user1
admin users = user1
