Hello mate,
I added it, with a simple user, and yes, it worked.

Now, doubs storm my mind.

now i have like 3 ways of achieving what i want.

1) username map = /etc/samba/smbusers (linking users to root)

2) admin users = frank

3) messing up with my netgroups and granting rights

Which one should i use?

Which one offers the most secure way?
