Samba4 with Linux and Windows clients wanting to get the same home folder data.HiA college has students arranged with Linux home directories according to which year they belong to and which class within that year, a or b or whatever, they belong to e.g.:/home2/students/year7/year7a/student1 /home2/students/year7/year7a/student2 ... ... /home2/students/year13/year13a/student2500To get at the same data on windows, I was thinking of a share for each of the classes e.g.[year7a] path = /home2/students/year7/year7a read only = No browsable = No ... ... [year13a] path = /home2/students/year13/year13a read only = No browsable = No and mapping a drive letter to the share e.g. map Z: to \\server\year7a\%USERNAME% That would make lots of shares but would make it readable to non admins. Is there a limit on the number of shares per installation?Any other ideas of how to go about it? e.g. I thought about OU's but we do not want to administer from Windows.
Did you thought about making a new directory ie./home2/students/data with a link to each real user and then sharing data like that
[data] path = /home2/students/data read only = No browsable = NoAnd then use ADUC or ldbedit to specify the connect to attribute and set it to \\servername\data\%username%
