We have 2 ubuntu 8.04 LTS fileservers running samba version 3.0.28a-1ubuntu4.12, they export samba shares for windows server 2003 machines. There is no windows AD domain, just plain user authentication. From
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP security = SHARE passdb backend = smbpasswd:/etc/samba/smbpasswd unix password sync = no syslog = 0 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 dns proxy = No panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d encrypt passwords = true invalid users = root hosts allow = 10.1.1.0/24 [md0] comment = md0 path = /mnt/md0/smb/share1 valid users = user1 force user = root force group = root read only = no create mask = 0660 directory mask = 0770 browseable = Yes
