The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 231
Guest account in service section
Last modified: 2007-04-29 14:16:43 UTC
I have "guest account = nobody" in a share specific section of smb.conf.
Testing with "testparm", I find the warning:
"Global parameter guest account found in service section!". When running smbd,
there is also a warning " param/loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3118)
Global parameter guest account found in service section! ". The man page
related to smb.conf says that "guest account" can be used in global and specific
sections. What is right ?
Just confirming this was intentionally lost during Samba 3.0.
The semantics are hard to keep in the current design - if you want 'force user'
then use that, it remains 'per-share'. (The problem is the changing meaning of
the guest account on ACLs, and the need to treat guest logins just like any
XML source for man page updated
originally reported against 3.0.0beta2. CLeaning out
non-production release versions.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
