16.04 lts samba question

william drescher
I am user: william

on one win10 machine when I save a new file on the 16.04 server
it correctly assigns user:group as william:william.  On another
win10 machine it assigns nobody:nogroup.

How can I change this ?
thanks

-bill

It's been too long since I did Samba stuff for me to answer this, but I
know one thing you'll be asked is: "What's your directory service
back-end?"  E.g., do you have an NTLM domain?  An AD domain?  Or is this
a small setup with just a couple machines and no backend?  (I'm betting
on the lattermost, because that'd explain your symptoms -- but I'm not
sure what the answer would be.)

Peter Silva
apparently, one doesn't need samba anymore.  Win 10 can mount NFS volumes...


dunno if win 10 home might not be able to or not.

are you logging in as 'william' from both win10 machines? do you type in
a domain name? what are the versions of win10 on each?

Mine is version 1803

Thank you and Peter.

Turned out to be a Win10 problem/solution.
When you first map the drive you can enter the credentials to use
logging in.  I just disconnected the drive and re-mapped it.

Files are accessed using the permissions of the logged-in user. The
implication is that you are allowing guest access with write
permissions or that there is some filespace actually owned by user
"nobody".

I could be wrong in which case please ignore. 

Both these things are very bad ideas, and should be avoided.

actually, on this Win10 box there is only 1 user, william and no
physical access to anyone but william (other than breaking in).

What about on the box running Samba?
