Hi Rowland,

 I can manage the security permission, but I can't manage the share permission after I remove the user "everyone"'s share permission and add "domain admins" and "domain user" share permission.
Do you have any advice?


yours Adam

You can log into a Windows computer as 'DOMAIN\Administrator' and then 
set the permissions on a Samba share, but you must create the share 
correctly, you cannot have any of the old parameters such as 'valid 
users' etc, see here:
This should work, if it doesn't , you probably have something set up 
incorrectly, so double check everything
