Description John H Terpstra (mail address dead( 2008-08-31 08:52:32 UTC
Specification of the "-valid = False" parameter (as documented in the smb.conf man page) no longer functions. Any valid user can still connect to the share.

When this parameter is inserted into a share stanza, executing "testparm -s" removes this parameter.

I will fix this today.
Comment 2 Jeremy Allison 2008-09-03 13:49:36 UTC
Looks like this is also broken in 3.0.x as well. Might have been this way for a while.
Comment 3 Karolin Seeger 2008-09-04 09:24:58 UTC
This one is fixed with 4f2de297 and friends in all trees.
