I'm running Ubuntu Server 12.04 and I'm experiencing a problem with my Samba setup.
I've created some groups to easily grant permissions on my samba shares. Some shares have two groups as valid users. A read only group and a group with read write permissions on the files and directories.
My problem is non-root users can't write to the share when it's mounted. But they can when it's not mounted. The group changes from users to root when I mount the share. And I can't figure out how force the group to remain as 'users' when the share mounts.
The idea is create a Linux and Samba user account, add the account to the group users.
I have a server running Samba with a share called "MyShare". MyShare contains a folder that, on the Server's file system is owned by user "User1" and Group "Employees". The folder and it's files are 770 and 660 respectively.
I have a few conditions to meet with a new samba setup.I want to migrate a windows based share to a linux samba share. However this time the share is in the regular corporate LAN and I do not have the rights to add this samba server to the corporate windows domain.
Okay, I give up. I have changed my server from an old Dec ALPHA to a shiny new to me DELL 2650. Installed Lubuntu 11.10 with no problems and mounted my RAID 1 setup formated fat32 for my windoze machines. I want to share with samba, but i can't change the group settings after i have mounted it. It is owned by root, and the group is root. I want to change the group to users for my samba shares.
