View Full Version : [ubuntu] Samba share from ubuntu to authenticate windows domain users

February 27th, 2012, 11:17 AM
Dear Ubuntu people,

I have an ubuntu 10.04.2 desktop joined into my windows domain running on Windows 2008 R2 AD server using pbisopen6.5 (formerly likewise open).

My requirement is that I have a samba share /ubshare in this machine. which could be accessed by the domain users from their windows computers. All those users will fall under three groups namely,


If the abc_read group people login they should have only read permission for the samba share.

If the abc_write group people login they should have have write permission for the share.

If the abc_full group people login they should have the full permission on the same share.

Please guide me how to achieve this.

Samba has directives to limit access by group membership. Take a look at this (http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/AccessControls.html#id2611888).
