I suspect, based on the conversation about this back in May 2013 in the
thread titled "\"map to guest = bad user\" ignored in Samba 4?", that
this is still an issue?
What I'm trying to do is setup a samba4 file server with the following
options in the [global] area of smb.conf:
server role = active directory domain controller
map to guest = bad user
guest account = samba_guest
path = /mnt/smb/software
read only = no
hide files = /lost+found/
guest ok = yes
However, it is still prompting me for authentication when I try and
access the server from a non-domain machine. The expected behavior
would be that it maps me to the guest account ("map to guest = bad
user") and then lets me browse the [software] share as a guest user.
We're running 4.0.6. Looking at the release notes for 4.0.7 I don't see
anything with "guest" in the notes.
