I have a Solaris 8 samba 3.0 server. For over a year I have been running a share which has group USERS, so everyone in USERS group can map the share. Under this share there are several subdirectories that all have their own unique group for access.
Share is called [PROJECTS]
UNIX dir structure
PROJECTS owned by root grouped by USERS
ENGINEERING owned by root grouped by ENGR
SOFTWARE owned by root grouped by SW
MANAGEMENT owned by root grouped by MGT
PROGRAMMING owned by root grouped by PROG
For over a year users have been able to map the PROJECTS share, then access the subdirectories based on their group membership in NIS groups. Last week it just stopped working. I didn't change version ov samba. The only change I made was to add a new user in smb.conf file. I reverted back to smb.conf BEFORE the problem, but it didn't work either.
