The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6354
force user not working
Last modified: 2009-05-14 05:56:29 UTC
Last month, I updated to Fedora 10 with samba 3.2.11-0.30.fc10 via a
complete reinstall. Using x86-64. We are now experiencing a problem on a
share with the force user parameter. Samba is a domain controller. Still using smbuser file
comment = Test Share
path = /home/zz
force user = zzadminp
create mask = 0770
directory mask = 0770
The primary group of zzadminp above is admplus.
If user markoren with primary group ntadmin writes a file to the above
share, the file owner is markoren and the file group is admplus.
-rwxrw---- 1 markoren admplus 94 2009-05-12 19:51 MAOtestfilezz8.txt
Samba is setting the primary group of the forced user properly, but is not
setting the forced user as the owner.
