Now, it is my first time with Linux and a SAMBA File server. I am using the TurnKey Linux File Server Appliance.
I have installed it native on my new fileserver machine (an OLD Dell 670 Workstation 2GB RAM and 2TB x 4 SATA) I can access webshell, webmin, extplorer - all good, but :
My Scenario is, that I want to have the following Groups of users, namely (HR, EXEC, IT, Marketing, Sales, Production) ... I will then create users individually and add them to there respective groups.
for a test, i created a HR group and add our HR person to it, they can see the share listed when they connect from a windows machine but they can't create anything inside it.
I clicked on the option "synchronize UNIX user and samba user" and synchronize UNIX group and samba group as well.
Also, I have active directory, what is the real benefit of binding my file server to our Active Directory and how reliable is that ?
I will have a few more questions which I will post once I have tried and failed,
will be grateful for your assistance on the above Kind Regards
