View Full Version : [ubuntu] Active Directory Samba Share Permission Problem

February 24th, 2011, 08:08 PM
Hi everyone. I'm having a problem with Active Directory and Share permissions that I cant seem to figure out.

I used likewise-open to join my ubuntu server to a windows 2008 domain. Everything seems to be working fine. The problem is, the only way I can access the shares is if I CHMOD 777 the share directory. If I CHMOD 770, the Domain owner or Domain group member of the directory cant access the directory. Also, when creating a folder within the share, I need to set the directory mask as 777 in order to enter those sub folders.

Heres the share section from my smb.conf

comment = Ubuntu File Server Share
path = /srv/samba/public
browseable = yes
read only = no
create mask = 777
directory mask = 777
valid users = @"NCC\Domain Users"

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok, solved this by purging likewise open, samba, and winbind and re-installing. Gremlins.
