Samba shares, how unix ACL
« on: June 10, 2016, 11:35:52 am »
Hi there,

I've got few question and find out anything about it.
I've set up a sambe share, crated group/users and everything is fine with it

But ... (there's always one)

I'm trying to manually change the ACL on my unix shared folder, like adding group with access to that folder
then I try to access my folder with a suer in this group .. .but the access is denied.

Is there anything else zentyal is doing, a file I should modify to make it works ?

thanks for your kind help

Easiest way to control ACL's is to open the Samba share with a windows machine, then right click the folders/files and set the permissions from there.

Otherwise, read up on ACL's and linux (using getfacl and setfacl to create rules).   Also in the Zentyal share setting, allow ACL's...

A nice Ubuntu help file - make sure your file system supports ACL's, etc...
