We have a Fedora Directory Server running LDAP, where a few hundred users exist. We need a way we can create samba shares depending on projects and limit access to these shares across multiple Linux servers.
Here we have 15-20 servers each running different versions of CentOS. Idea is to create folders depending on groups where read/write access is limited to just that group or a subset of users of the specific group.
How do we authenticate users and create Samba Shares in another server in the same subnet. Users use Windows Professional, and they should be accessing a specific samba share to backup files for specific servers.
I need to create a single form, where the admin can create a folder by choosing the server, and assign users accordingly. Ideas welcome on how to go about this.
