Is there any way to get samba to work with usernames that look like
email addresses? Perhaps a way to escape the "@" ?
I ask because I'm setting up a samba server with LDAP backend whose sole
purpose is to share [homes] directories for end-users from multiple
companies using virtual desktops at a hosting provider. I need to have
unique logins across these companies and would very much like to use
email addresses as usernames for this purpose, but alas nothing like
this seems to work:
smbclient -U "joel.reed\@visn.biz" "//samba1/joel.reed at visn.biz/"
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
