Samba and "File Owner"
Have got Samba working pretty well at a work environment.
However, I've discovered something that will prohibit me from using it in the future, unless I can solve it.
Users and Groups appear to have proper access. However, when a user creates a file on a partition formatted as "ext3" and saves it to the Samba share, the file owner becomes the creator, and no one else can modify it.
I need for anyone with access to the share to be able to modify anything that is saved there. This is desireable in our environment.
I don't seem to have this problem on VFAT drives.
So, user john creates a file and user susan has to be able to modify it?
If they are both members of the group design this would work.
Add the following to the share
This is with permissions on the share also being 770.
force create mode = 0770
force directory mode = 0770
This should allow all members of the group to modify files placed in the share by any member of the group.
I am experiencing the same problem too...
but i don't want to change the read-write permissions... it'll screw up everything. I need a way to crate files with a different owner. So something like... when i'm logged in as alex on my server i would like to create files in the multimedia share with the group set to family, so just the ppl in that group has certain permissions.
