I have several groups in /etc/groups on my samba server. I upgraded to
samba 3.0.23b and then users couldn't connect to any shares they were
groups on in /etc/groups (shares used valid users = @groupname) but
could connect to shares where valid users = their_username. I did some
reading and saw the group mapping change at
And then I did net groupmap add unixgroup=mygroups and that worked
Can I ask, why the change, and why do I have to execute that command for
each group instead of samba just getting who's in the group from /etc/group?
