So we have a team of 9 people that need a file share on a linux server. Every person has its own laptop. Most have a linux distribution on it and some have a windows OS. For security reasons the solution needs to support ACL. On top of that it should be easy to implement and maintain.
Ideas that came up up are Samba3 for file sharing but a problem remains. Linux users have a UID/GID of 1000/1000. Ofcource on the server not everyone can have the same UID/GID. I do not know how it is with windows. OpenLDAP could be a solution but it is to complex in setup and maintenance. And I do not know if Samba3 user mapping can be used for this.
Is there simple solution to this ? Maybe for linux only clients/server (windows support could be dropped) ?
