Description Tom Dickson 2003-09-03 12:53:56 UTC
Using the following doesn't work:

 path = /mnt/H44//%U
 browseable = yes
 writeable = yes
 preserve case = yes
 valid users = %D+%U
 comment = Home Share
 short preserve case = yes

But changing valid users to write list works, i.e.:

write list = %D+%U

It also fails with %S, etc.

Looking through level 10 logs shows smbd not expanding the macros:
