Is there a parameter in smb.conf that prevent users to use drag and drop
within Samba shares?
I know this is a Winedow$ function, but some users (hum, hum) use Explorer
to open their files and accidentally they drag and drop sometimes a
directory in the root of the share to another directory in the root of the
My samba server is member of a native W2k3 server Active Directory and AD
users are able to access the Samba shares.
The share is configured like this in smb.conf:
comment = Group Directory
path = /data/grp
valid users = @NH-HOTELES.COM\DEP_RHEL4_MEMBER
read only = No
inherit permissions = Yes
hide unreadable = Yes
The /data/grp directory looks like this:
drwxrws--- 2 root NH-HOTELES\dep_rhel4_adm 4096 Sep 11 2006 adm
drwxrws--- 4 root NH-HOTELES\dep_rhel4_fog 4096 Mar 9 2007 fog
If a user is member of dep_rhel4_adm and dep_rhel4_fog he/she is able to
drag and drop the fog directory into the adm directory.
If it is not possible to configure this within smb.conf, can I do something
on the Linux side?
Thanx for any answer.
