The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 482
Swat ignores quotes when writing to smb.conf
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:29:46 UTC
I am using ver 3.0 rc3 with winbind to enumerate users and groups from an NT4
OS is RedHat 9.0
Kernel is SGI XFS-1.3, 2.4.20-19.9
Quad Pentium pro, 768 Mb RAM
Mylex DAC960 RAID controllers
when I specify an NT 4 group in swat that has a space, I use quotes eg.
@"DOMAIN+Domain Admins" when I click "Commit changes" and then view the
smb.conf file with vi, any of the group entry with spaces are changed like the
write list = @DOMAIN+Domain, Admins
after the changes take effect, the security on the shares no longer works
Manually editing smb.conf with vim and placing the quotes arround the group
names with spaces corrects the problem.
