@ specified in force group not picked up by testparm causes mount error
Last modified: 2016-06-20 21:06:17 UTC
Made a configuration error in specifying the force group in smb.conf - put a @ in front of the group command.
force group = @groupname
should have been
force group = groupname
Not picked up by testparm and causes Linux client to have issues mounting it:
Error: Failed to mount Windows share: Invalid argument
Please select another viewer and try again.
Removed the extra @ in the force group command and the problem goes away. Would have expected the testparm util to pick up this issue. Took a long time to diagnose the issue and it would have been nice for testparm to pick this up.
