    Great article. If a Windows Group has group permission to the SAMBA share and you make a change to that Windows group, add someone, for example; why does it take a reboot of the Linux server to recognize the change? Until you do that, the new Windows user cannot access the share in Linux.

    Thanks, Kevin

    Hi kevin, 

     Just wondering, which part of the post you are referring for reboot, Normally, Once we configured the group to samba share, we don’t make any modifications to linux for group related changes like ( adding user, remove user …etc). But we want to add new group information we have to configure back in samba and restart the samba service ( not the linux server) to make the changes effective.
