Description Robert Petty 2003-09-26 09:31:08 UTC
The default for sun is to set "nobody"s home directory to "/".  Even when not 
sharing "[homes]" we can access "\\servername\NOBODY" and until the home 
directory for nobody is altered, the entire filesystem is visible. There is no 
share in the smb.conf named "nobody" or anything even close to it.
Comment 1 Tim Potter 2003-09-28 22:20:03 UTC
Can you post your smb.conf file?

Do you have the 'map to guest' parameter set?

I've tried to reproduce this with a minimal smb.conf file but can't access a
share called NOBODY (fails with "tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME").

The supplied smb.conf includes the [homes] share, so I presume this one is user

This is a documented effect of the [homes] share, and the reason for the 'valid
users = %S' option.  Possibly this should be a default.
