Description Ales Zelinka 2008-08-27 07:42:12 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-samba ignores custom value of the "username map" option in smb.conf and even replaces it with its hardwired path: /etc/samba/smbusers. 

This leads to denial of services for all users specified in the custom file.

Packages affected:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set "username map" in smb.conf to point to some other file than /etc/samba/smbusers
2. add user to samba (smbpasswd -a user) and create a username mapping (echo 'user = "winuser"' >> /custom/mappings/file)
3.run system-config-file and add another user
4. try to access samba service as winuser (smbclient -L localhost -Uwinuser%password)

Actual results:
Authentication fails because winuser is no longer recognised as a known user.

Expected results:
Samba shares are listed.
