[Samba] SAMBA share permissions all other known users

  Add "valid users = RAJU\bk1234, RAJU\pa7263" to the share definition.


      valid users (S)

    This is a list of users that should be allowed to login to this
    service. Names starting with '@', '+' and '&' are interpreted using
    the same rules as described in the /|invalid users|/ parameter.

    If this is empty (the default) then any user can login. If a
    username is in both this list and the /|invalid users|/ list then
    access is denied for that user.

    The current servicename is substituted for /|%S|/. This is useful in
    the [homes] section.

    Default: //|valid users|/ = | # No valid users list (anyone can
    login) | /

    Example: //|valid users|/ = |greg, @pcusers| /
