Description Darren Fulton 2005-08-01 15:45:12 UTC
Description of problem:  go to the Fedora DS Howto:Samba page and scroll down
and look at the code block that includes:

net groupmap add rid=512 ntgroup=âDomain Adminsâ  unixgroup=âDomain Adminsâ

Notice that the single quotes are this "â" symbol and not "'" character.  The
curvey single quote is not valid for shell input.  That whole block of text (and
maybe others) contains that.  People are going to be pasting this text into
their terminals and generating errors and breaking things.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The version that is online as of Aug 1 2005.

How reproducible:
On every visit to the web page in Linux w/Firefox and Windows w/IE.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Go to the web Page
Actual results:
Invalid text in code block here: 
# net groupmap add rid=512 ntgroup=âDomain Adminsâ  unixgroup=âDomain Adminsâ
# net groupmap add rid=513 ntgroup=âDomain Usersâ unixgroup=âDomain Usersâ
# net groupmap add rid=514 ntgroup=âDomain Guestsâ unixgroup=âDomain Guestsâ
# net groupmap add rid=515 ntgroup=âDomain Computersâ unixgroup=âDomain Computersâ

Expected results:
Everything in the code block should be stuff that you can paste into a console.
# net groupmap add rid=512 ntgroup='Domain Admins'  unixgroup='Domain Admins'
# net groupmap add rid=513 ntgroup='Domain Users' unixgroup='Domain Users'
# net groupmap add rid=514 ntgroup='Domain Guests' unixgroup='Domain Guests'
# net groupmap add rid=515 ntgroup='Domain Computers' unixgroup='Domain Computers'

I updated the HowTo for Samba on the wiki.  The quotes are now single quotes
instead of back quotes.
