Explain user shares to me.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay so I just built my 21TB file server using flexraid in tRaid and it all looks like it went smoothly and things are working as I expected.

I shared the pooled drive using my login credentials on the server so I can login to the share on my network which is all fine.

What I want to do is create a folder on te server for my girlfriend and give her access to her share from her laptop but I want to do this without creating her an account on the local machine.

In OSX I know this is very easily possible within networking preferences, you can create an account for someone using a username/pass or their apple ID and attach this to a share and they can login to the share and see their folders without needing a user account on the host machine.

I'm sure this is possible I'm just not sure how to go about it.

Any help appreciated thank you thumb.gif

If she's on windows, all you need to do is open a "my computer" window, then click "map network drive".

Assign a drive letter and map the network share folder, then check "connect using different credentials", and put in the username/password for the share. Then it will show up in "my computer" just like a hard drive.

Yes I know this but how do I assign her own username/password for her own directory on the server itself?

Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for your reply.

So you need to make the server ask for the username/password on her folder? I think this is what you want then:

    I use this capability in Windows all the time.  As far as I know, you will have to create a user account for her on your server machine.  You can go to the Local Groups and Users snap-in (press [Win]+[R], type "lusrmgr.msc" and press [Enter]) and find the new user account you created for her, right-click it and click "Properties", and then go to the "Member Of" tab, remove all the groups from that list, and the account won't appear on the server computer's logon screen.  Then when you share the folder, you will remove "Everyone" from the share list, and add her username.  Then go to the Security tab and give her user account Full Control of the folder.  That should do it. thumb.gif

    If the username and password match on the server and her machine, she won't even get a network login dialog; it will silently authenticate as soon as she accesses the server machine over the network.

Thanks, I looked into it but I was more interested in doing it from Windows level.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. I was hoping the setup would be as intuitive as in OSX but I'll take what I'm given I suppose. I'll let you know what happens when the pool has finished creating parity (140 hours and just over 50% done -.-)

Thanks bud, +rep thumb.gif
