I have a little problem with Samba. I have an ADS integrated CentOS
5.4 server. I had frequent access problem when M$ users create
directories and files. So i thought to force users' persmissions by way
of the "force user" parameter in smb.conf.
First problem is that the forced users i want to apply are ADS users
and named like "MYDOMAIN#Joe" in passwd file. When i use this name in
smb.conf, i get this error when i run testparm: "ERROR: the 'winbind
separator' parameter must be a single character.", even if i used
"winbind separator =#". If i use "winbind separator =\" and name my
users like "MYDOMAIN\Joe" in smb.conf, i have no error but users cannot
access the share.
Actually, i know that "#" is sometimes used for comments on the
config file and "\" is sometimes used to escape characters. Now, what
should i do to fix the problem? Change Winbind config to use another
character? Use some kind of escaped character in smb.conf? I'm a
