hi all

i have an FC4 box which authenticates its urses against a Windows Active 
Directory

i have created the followinf share on the samba server

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Labs]
   comment = LAB Staff's Share
   path = /home/share
   valid users = must asif faqhi adnan
   browseable = yes
   public = no
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   create mask = 0765
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

note that asif, faqhi, adnan and must all are the users of Active directory. 
they can logon to the sshd running on the same box and they can open their 
home directories on the same box in Windows Network places, for home 
directories the configuration is as following

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
   idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
   template homedir = /home/%U
   template shell = /bin/bash
   winbind use default domain = yes
   password server = 168.10.1.255
   realm = GCU.EDU.PK
[homes]
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the problem is that when users open samba server in their network places, 
they can see their own home directory and the share named Labs. but when 
they try to access the Labs share, they get a message of access denied

do any one have any opinion on this

Regards
MusT
