Hi Experts,
I am using Windows server 2008 with active directory. I would like to map a network drive (shared with samba on Ubuntu) and than to reshare it on the windows server 2008 so that I can control the shares resides on Linux with Active Directory privileges. Is there some way to achieve it (some trick, third-party software)?

Regards

Adam

I don't believe it's possible to re-share a mapped drive in Windows 2008, or any other version of Windows for that matter.

You should look at getting the SAMBA share fully AD integrated, so you can control them via AD from the source.

There is NO way of reshearing, but as Scooter said - SAMBA offers LDAP (AD) athentication, so you can give it a try.
