I've got my Ubuntu server working with Samba4 and got it set up as the Primary domain controller on my network with AD and all that goodness.
However, I'm trying to get my Samba configuration to work with the users and groups I've defined with the Active Directory tools from Windows.
For instance, I've got a share X which I want users A and B (as part of the 'management' group, known as LLGrpManager in my setup) to see, but no body else. However, after making changes to the configuration, restarting Samba, I test by connecting to the share with my Mac over Samba as user 'C' which isn't part of the management group, and I can, incorrectly, see the X share.
I've tried alsorts of combinations of specifying the group with no luck at all. I've got a feeling that my global config might be too lenient or something to do with file permissions but being a bit green, I'm without clue.
# Global parameters [global] server role = domain controller server string = Office Server workgroup = LLDOMAIN realm = lldomain.local netbios name = DUMBO passdb backend = samba4 logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U logon drive = L: log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 security = ads domain logons = yes domain master = auto usershare allow guests = no valid users = %S [netlogon] path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/lldomain.local/scripts read only = no guest ok = no [sysvol] path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol read only = No guest ok = no valid users = @LLDOMAIN\LLGrpManager [ShareX] path = /data comment = Entire Data Volume guest ok = no comment = Entire Data Volume guest ok = no valid users = @LLDOMAIN\LLGrpManager admin users = @LLDOMAIN\LLGrpManager browsable = no inherit acls = yes inherit permissions = yes ...
I've also instructed the system to use the nss winbind library when searching for users or groups by adding the stanza passwd and group in /etc/nsswitch.conf:
passwd: compat winbind group: compat winbind shadow: compat
