Description kakuma 2003-10-23 01:42:23 UTC
Samba is running as a file server on linux.
We are sharing a directory tree using samba.
On a Windows 2k machine, I change ACL of a file on the public directory.
Select security tab on a property panel of the file.
Then click Add button and open a Selecting Users or Groups panel.
I can show users on the linux share on the panel.
But I can't show groups on the linux share.
And so I can't add group to ACL.

This occurs both when samba is running as a PDC and running as a non-PDC.

I could show groups on a linux share in a case of the samba 3.0 alpha20.

Is this result correct ?

samba system: GNU-Debian/Linux 
              use kernel supporting xfs
              Architecture: i386
samba : Samba 3.0.0 RC3
public file system : XFS
client system : Windows2000 Professional(Japanese) SP4

Only groups that have a mapping entry are shown.
I'm pretty sure this is a configuration error.
If you can prove otherwise, please reopen.

Thank you for comments.
But I have any questions.

Will you mean using "net groupmap add unixgroup=string ntgroup=string ..." ?
In the case of a samba 3.0 alpha20, I don't use the net command or
the smbgroupedit command, but I can show groups on a linux share.

Does this mean what the implementation of group mapping is modified
for a version later than samba 3.0 alpha20 ?
In the case of a samba 3.0 alpha20, will it be a bug that I could show
groups on a linux share ?

Yes.  The behavior has changed since the 
3.0alpha20 release.
