Re: [Samba] Resetting permissions on transferred files


Thanks for your response.  That's the issue, I'm not sure what other details I can give that would be helpful in this situation!  How do I identify who owns what and how do I propogate this over?  I'm aware how to do chmod/chown and find out the uid for Linux users, but I'm not sure how it works for Samba - does Samba use the same uid as Linux users, or does Samba retain its own list?  It's the exact same server setup as I previously discussed.

Looking up pdbedit -L -v gives the following values for my username (kit):

Old server:
Unix username:        kit
NT username:
Account Flags:        [U          ]
User SID: S-1-5-21-3690213834-1721161859-1610588051-1116
Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-3690213834-1721161859-1610588051-513

New server:
Unix username:        kit
NT username:
Account Flags:        [U          ]
User SID: S-1-5-21-456595659-2484967225-2845901235-1104
Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-456595659-2484967225-2845901235-513

As you can see, both SIDs don't match.  how do I synchronise the two?  I'm happy to do it manually, there's only 5 users.

Many thanks!

With kind regards - Piers

    If you setup Samba on the new server exactly the same as on the old one
and ran rsync correctly, you should have got the same permissions.

The problem you have now is that you will have to identify who owns
what and chown/chmod the folders/files to the new correct owners:groups.

It might help if you gave us more info other than the basic 'it did not
work' you have already given us.
