Trouble allowing Windows Administrator user access to Samba share
Posted on 2007-10-16
I have a Sco Openserver 6 machine running Samba (unsure how to determine the version)
I need to be able to create a share on the Unix box that is accessible by a windows Administrator login, and can read files onthe Unix box as if logged in as root.
This is so that I can use Windows NTBackup to create a complete backup of the Unix box.
At present there is an operational Samba share which workstations can browse and access happily, provided they have an account on the unix box. It presents them with a share of their home directory on the unix machine.
I did try creating an Administrator user on the unix box, but the username is too long.
Can someone please guide me through creating a 'simple' root share ?
