Samba ACL

Samba ACL
« on: September 02, 2007, 12:05:50 AM »
I was searching the forum for samba acl but I couldn't find any result.
Anyhow after some googling I enabled the great feature of ACL so I can control who can access the files and the resources.
It was very simple only what you need to do is editing /etc/fstab  and modify it by adding acl support to the file system to be as following :

Quote
/dev/main/root          /                       ext3    usrquota,grpquota,acl   1 1


reboot the system and enjoy the ACL. I have test it by myself and it's working.

The sme server combination of Users/Groups/Ibay ownership is the mechanism to control resource access. Did this not provide the control you required ?

What does enabling samba ACL achieve for you ?

Ibay ownership does not give full control for the files inside the Ibay. as an example if I have some files inside Ibay and I want to permit one user only to have write permission one file.
simply right click on the change the access the permission. but without modifying the acl in the file system it gives an error.
