Hi,
I'm just trying to share a folder on our SLES11SP2 server to a select AD group.

1) Run "Windows Domain Membership", enter our domain. Check "Also User SMB Information for Linux Authentication" and "Allow Users to Share Their Directories".
No problems, used a domain admin and successfully joined our AD domain, reboot SLES11SP2.

2) Create a new Linux user "testingt1" and we have a group in AD "Testing - Samba1" with users.

3) Issue this command to map these 2 groups:
net groupmap add ntgroup="Testing - Samba1" unixgroup=testing1 type=d

4) This command shows the new mapping:
net groupmap list

5) Create a folder "share-test1" on SLES and owner is "root", group is "testing1" and others is "none".
Right-click for properties of this folder, go to Share tab and select "Share this folder".

6) Folder is accessible is visible from a Windows workstation but I cannot get access. If I change that folder's permission to have "Others" assigned some rights, then I can access the folder. But this means any AD authenticated user could access the share.

Can someone please tell me what I'm missing or point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Marc
