Have user1 and user2. They are in usergroup1.

in console run it:

sudo chgrp -R usergroup1 /folder

Lihe this - https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/samba-fileprint-security.html > Share Security.

In smb.conf

comment = folder
path = /folder
browsable = yes
writable = yes
guest ok = no
write list = user1, user2
create mask = 0777

But only user2 can create/delete files.

I think it because before that I run in console:

sudo chown -R user2 /folder

How set folder writable for both users?

Also I try

write list = user1 user2

Without a comma. But so does not work.


I try change owner like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chown

chown -R :usergroup1 /folder

And edit smb.conf like this

write list = @usergroup1

But still both users can't add/del file in /folder.

UPD2 - Solution

I can cunfig it! Hope it help somebody.


comment = folder
path = /folder
browsable = yes
writable = yes
read only = no
create mask = 0770
directiory mask = 0770
valid users = @usergroup1

And mod for folder

chmod 775 /folder
  • 1

ok.. let's try this..

parent folder (chmod 777 / chown nobody:nogroup -R)

  • Folder1 (chmod 770 / chown nobody:group1 -R)
  • Folder2 (chmod 770 / chown nobody:group2 -R)

    useradd user1 group1 useradd user2 group2

at samba...

guest ok = no (or yes you must check this)
force user = nobody
force group = group1
writelist = user1 @group1
read list = user2 @group2

same for the [group2] but change the order os users at write and read...
