I have a windows 2003 SBS handling domain logins, I also have an Ubuntu
machine being used as a file server this is using winbind and is on the
domain I can chown dirs etc with Active Directory users.
However I have the following problem, I need to allow certain users to
access some dirs and not others... for example.
"folder1" would need to be accessed by "user1" "user2" and "user3"
Now my understanding of this would be to add users 1,2 & 3 to a group
say for example "group1" then chown folder1 with that group?
"chown -R :"DOMAIN\Domain Users" folder1"
Thats fine but then when user 1,2 or 3 access folder1 and write to the
folder and there primary group is "Domain Users" for example it will
make it unreadable for other users?
I could force it to take permissions from the parent directory using
sticky bit? but what if the users creates a dir and then another dir
would it still take its permissions from its parent directory then?
It must be fairly common to want to set a bunch of users that are not in
the same primary group access to one dir that no other users can access?
If any one has any ideas / feedback at all on how they have done this it
would be great as im melting my brain thinking a way around this if im
