[Samba] Fwd: Force group gid

Addition to my previous post...

There are also instances where the use of force user responding to a uid would 
be advantageous.  E.g. a local users account conflicting with a domain 
account of the same name.
force user = lewis 

results in access denied on writes as the service connects to the share  using 
the account MYDOMAIN\lewis  with uid 10007 instead of the local unix lewis 
with uid 1007 account 

Just my $.02 worth...

Hi All,

I note from previous posts that the uid & gid are not supported in smb.conf.
My issue is that I have mysql auth backend for ftp sites, that I'd like to
share directories for internal access.  There is currently no way I can see
to force the user or group using uid & gid for this type of backend.
Can anyone offer any suggestions as a work around to this?
