You can set up a share to always use a specific Linux User/Group by using the "force user" and "force group" options.On Sun, Mar 23, 2008 at 11:01:02AM -0700, Craig White wrote:samba by default uses security = user which by current Windows standards means that a workstation can connect to this particular server with only 1 identity. Thus if you are already connected to a share as DOMAIN|WORKGROUP\foo, you cannot connect to a different share as DOMAIN|WORKGROUP\bar the 'security = share' concept emulates the Windows 95/98 sharing concept where each share connection can be a different user but that is essentially obsolete and should be avoided if possible.Yes, I suspect that's my problem, what a pain! I seem to remember there's a way to tell samba that I want user X to connect to a particular share as user Y, I guess (if there is such a thing and my memory isn't playing tricks) that's what I'd better do.
