Can anyone help with a problem since upgrading from samba 3.0.14 to 3.0.20
I have a problem from a share. If the admin users = is added it seems to be
Before with 3.0.14 the share was defined like this
comment = Dr. Cai, Graphics
path = /home/meugrads/cai_hw
valid users= @cai_hw1
admin users = fau\caig
public = no
writeable = yes
browsable = no
directory mask = 0700
create mode = 0700
This setup allow students in the group @cai_hw1 access to the share and
then each directory below that was owned by the particular student so other
students could do nothing except in their own directory.
Since the professor was listed as admin user he could get into any
directory to grade the homework etc.
** Please note he was NOT listed in the valid users group (he was not in
However since upgrading to 3.0.20 with the same conf file the professor is
no longer able to get to the share, it gives permission denied.
So I added him to the /etc/netgroup file and he can now get accees to the
share but gets access denied when going into one of the student directories.
Can anyone tell me how admin users and valid users works in the new version,
I am not sure if this is a bug or if I neglected to do something.
Thanks for your help
