    [SAMBA] Students folders


    Maybe someone can help me with my problem.

    I have user folders in:


    and etc.

    I want to create samba share that show me only selected folders. I.e.
    User "TeacherA" see only /home/user*a folders and "TeacherB" see only /home/user*b folders

    Thanks for help!

    Wouldn't the [homes] section do that for you ? Or did you need a second share ?

    If I needed a second one, I'd do it with an enumerated share, where the name of the folder matches the user name

    Note that the unsername must match: teachera then needs /something/teachera, /home/teachera, /sambashare/teachera, anything like that.


    comment = %U Share
    path = /home/$U
    read only = No
    valid users = %U

    Good luck
