Description Chris Guild 2009-01-12 11:37:19 UTC
As seen below within the smb.conf, the shares are exported as such:

[cc]
    path = /cc
    comment = directory
    directory mask = 0775
    create mask = 0775
    valid users = @ccuser
    read list = @ccuser
    write list = @ccuser
    writeable = yes
    public = no
    case sensitive = no
    default case = lower
    preserve case = yes
    short preserve case = yes
    mangled names = no
    fake directory create times = true
    dos filetime resolution = true
    map archive = no
    map hidden = no
    map system = no
    follow symlinks = yes
    wide links = yes
    browseable = yes


When the Windows Administrators add a new user, even if they make sure they are within the ccuser group, the smbd must be stopped and restarted before the new user account is allowed to authenticate against the share.

The workaround is to include every single user account within the “valid users=” line, and then the new users created are authenticated successfully.

Please let us know how to proceed.


# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not many any basic syntactic errors.
