samba has root access
« on: June 15, 2010, 06:55:29 pm »
hi guys,

I'm running 8.10 and now added a new harddrive. I can log into samba and use the drive from my desktop PC, but I have full root access so every user can read and write other users files.
It's due to "force user = root" in smb.conf - I can edit the file but after a while it will change back by its own...
Is that supposed to be that way?

Yes, at present.

Patches welcome.
