Re: [vox-tech] Dealing with different UIDs and GIDs


Does the user that Samba runs under (I think it's 'nobody' by default)
have permission to read the mountpoint directory?

I would add the samba user (the UID that samba runs as) to the group
that can read (or write to) the directories.  Or am I missing something
