You can add user1 to a group that user2 is currently in, and set permissions of the user2 home share to be "group-readable".

For example, user2 is a member of the group "foo", so you can add user1 to "foo" group, add user2's home share to "foo" group, and finally do a chmod g+wxr to user2's home folder.

hey list,

we are currently migrating our users from novell to samba. now we have one problem: in novell we could give e.g. user1 access to users2 home share so he could modify, delete or add files on this share. in samba we defined a global homes share that is mapped on logon. so how can we give user1 the needed rights?

here is the definition of the homes share in smb.conf:

        comment = user share
        browseable = no
        writeable = yes
        write list = %U
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700

        force user = %U
        force group = Administrators
        oplocks = true

do we need to add a special share and group?

thanks for help and best regards
