Description of problem:
It does not work. let me clarify what I would like to do.
target Directory : software
directory owner: root
groups : softw - users can write, read to the folder
softr - users can only read and execute.
1. users cannot access the directory unless in either "softw" and "softr" group.
2. users in the "softr" group, users can access only read and execute the
content of the directory
through the samba interface.
3. users in the "softw" group, users can write and modify the directory through
worked previously in AS 2.1. Worked through AS support and they suggested this issue was a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create group softw, and softr
2. edit smb.conf and add
comment = Software
path = /home/share/software
public = no
writable = no
printable = no
write list = @softw
read list = @softr
3. windows side access server \\server\share
Actual Results: users can read directory
Expected Results: users cannot access the folder unless in either "softw" and "softr" group.
I added "valid users = @softw, @softr" and it works as expected. user smbdvl1
is a member of softw, and can read and write the share. User smbdvl2 is a
member of softr and can only read the share. User smbdvl3 is not a member of
either group and cannot access the share.
