[Samba] Having problem with "valid users" in Active Directory/Samba environment

OK I understand that you have created a directory on the Samba server.
I am not a Samba expert, so what I need to know is the configuration entered in the smb.conf that you are using.
You could run "testparm" to create the data, then edit it to replace any confidential information, e.g. replace the actual domain name with DOMAIN, or user names with USER.
If you could provide that information I would be most grateful.

hi Eric,

Could you please provide the actual settings of the share you are suggesting would be placed in the smb.conf file? Or are you suggesting creating a specific share for each user?
Eric Peterson


well, we've created a new directory /homesdirs/ which is a samba-share (f. e. to setup profile-folders in the AD). The access rights is set by Windows with ACL support on samba. Domain security policy adds administratoter to each profile-folder.
