Vincent Cunniffe proposed -
> Add :
> force user = deptshared
> public = no
> writable = yes
> printable = no
> Create the user 'deptshared', and
> chown -R deptshared.deptshared /home/shared
> then restart samba, and any of the named users who connect to that share
> will have all of their read and write requests mapped out of their own
> user ID's into the common 'deptshared' one. All current and future file
> ownership will be in the common deptshared ID.
Works like a charm!
Thank you very much.
