Hi ,

 For example. I have a share service named "IT", I want only members in the IT team can see that share, members in other team can't even see the share. Then I would do this:
remove the user "everyone"'s share permission and add "domain admins" with full control and the ad group "it",with read and write permissions in "share" tab.


yours Adam

Using 'hide unreadable' in smb.conf should have no bearing on the 
'share' tab, it hides files that users cannot read, it does not hide the 
share. If you want to hide the entire share from Windows clients, then 
place a '$' on the end of the share name in smb.conf e.g. [share] 
becomes [share$], this would hide it from everyone though.
Just what are you trying to add or remove from the 'share' tab ?
