I share three or four folders over my network, but since upgrading to 20.04, I am unable to create new ones. When I try, I get the error message
'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. > An invalid combination of parameters was specified..
Existing shares continue to be accessible.
I tried the fix given here but the line in question is already in my /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
Edit: Entering net usershare info --long yields the folowing:
Entering testparm yields:
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf Loaded services file OK. Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
