Samba “net” tool.

Posted: May 22, 2006 in Systems/Network Administration

One of the nifty tools that was of great help during the Samba journey was "net", a tool for administration of Samba and remote CIFS servers.The samba net utility is meant to work just like the net utility available for windows and DOS.
For example to map a NT group (Domain Admins) to a Unix group (root),we can do a

net groupmap modify netgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=root

To list the mapped groups, the command is,

net groupmap list
