Hi A 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/student2500 To 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 = No And then use ADUC or ldbedit to specify the connect to attribute and set it to \\servername\data\%username%
Hi Matthieu, That looks promising. Will cifs symlink, or are we still at ext4 level here? Are you saying that a real student e.g. /home2/students/year7/year7a/steve has a symlink in /home2/students/data ?? Would that be e.g. for student steve: ln -s /home2/students/year7/year7a/steve /home2/students/data/steve (or is the link the other way around?) All students then have a link in /home2/students/data/<name> irrespective of which class they are in. For all students, I then map, e.g. Z: to \\servername\data\%USERNAME% Am I close?
