I need help from a Samba guru. I have a Samba server that is a member of a large corporate domain. I have about 60 users that are currently using the server, but I need to create a share that only a few of my users can get access to. I do not have access to modify/add groups on the domain, so I was trying to figure out a way that I could create a local group on the server and setup permissions so that these users can get into the directory.

Here is what I have done so far:

1. I created a local group called "admin_assist" and added each user with the command "gpasswd -a domain+user admin_assist".
2. I then set the permissions of the directory so that the group "admin_assist" has read/write access.

When I try to browse to that directory as one of the users in the "admin_assist" group I am still getting a permission denied error. It is behaving like winbind is just ignoring the local group.

Anyone know how to fix this?
