    Problem with Samba server

    Hi everyone, I have newly installed RHEL on my server, now Im trying to put a samba on that.. I hvae created two users "mahesh" and "gupta" and I have following configurations :

    workgroup = MYGROUP
    server string = Samba Server Version %v
    netbios name = Samba
    encrypt passwords = yes

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    valid users = %S
    ; valid users = MYDOMAIN\%S

    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    guest ok = no
    writable = no
    printable = yes

    # Un-comment the following and create the netlogon directory for Domain Logons
    ; [netlogon]
    ; comment = Network Logon Service
    ; path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon
    ; guest ok = yes
    ; writable = no
    ; share modes = no

    # Un-comment the following to provide a specific roving profile share
    # the default is to use the user's home directory
    ; [Profiles]
    ; path = /var/lib/samba/profiles
    ; browseable = no
    ; guest ok = yes

    # A publicly accessible directory, but read only, except for people in
    # the "staff" group
    ; [public]
    ; comment = Public Stuff
    ; path = /home/samba
    ; public = yes
    ; writable = yes
    ; printable = no
    ; write list = +staff
    path = /home/
    readonly = no
    brosweable = yes

    Just because you set samba permissions doesn't that server is going to ignore UNIX permissions
    linux user # 503963

    make your groups; staff

    change owner of /Home/staff

    group permissions

    staff 770

    add user to group
    "mahesh" and "gupta"

    add user to samba

    The users have no system privileges only samba
