There is one little piece I'm missing.
I have a Samba directory: /home/documents
I have 10 Window XP users that need R/W access to this directory.
I have another 10 Window XP users that need R/O access to this directory.
No other Windows users should be able to see this directory.
The R/W users will get access by doing a Windows Search, Computers, and click on the directory. They may also map the directory to a drive letter, but that shouldn't be necessary.
Most R/O users will be accessing this directory via UNC (i.e. double click on a document name that is imbedded in another file).
I have a test Samba server. The SMB.CONF is near bear minimums:
linux61:/etc/samba # cat smb.conf
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11)
# Date: 2009/03/31 12:42:57
workgroup = TESTWORKS
netbios name = HOBBIT
null passwords = Yes
ldap ssl = no
comment = cityworks read only
path = /home/documents
I don't have a LDAP server, but that may change in late summer.
I seem to go back and forth between windows user having complete R/W access to this directory and no windows users having access to this directory.
It doesn't seem to matter if I create Linux userids with Yast. Or if I create Samba users via SMBPASSWD.
I've been reading "The Officail Samba 3.2.x HOWTO and Reference Guide" as well as Samba-3 by Example.
They either have too simple of setup jump to a lot more complex of an example.
I've been maintaining this via SWAT.
So what really needs to be done?
