FreeNAS / Active Directory
Hi there, does anyone have experience in getting FreeNAS shares to work with Active Directory groups? I'm finding a bit of a black hole of information relating to this apart from a few reports that it doesn't work in v0.6.4. I'm running 0.6.9 and can get FreeNAS to successfully pull in the AD user list, but that's about as far as I get.
AD has the following security groups: Pupils and Staff
FreeNAS has the following shares: Shared (for pupils) and Staffdata (staff only)
The local dirs are set with chmod to Owner group Staff, then 777 for Shared and 770 for Staff.
What I'd like is for the AD "Staff" group members to have seamless access to both shares, and the AD "Pupils" group members to only have access to the "Shared" share.
I'm hoping this can be done but my *nix file system knowledge is pretty ropey to say the least!
Any help will be much appreciated. Tea and cake readily available!!

Here you go, a step-by-step guide to getting OpenFiler to work with Active Directory. I'll mention it's not the definitive way of setting up OpenFiler but it worked for me when practically everything else didn't! That and I'm not an expert by any means ;)
