    Do you have this information how to access shares and redirect home folders to shares for linux clients on ubuntu connecting to a zentyal 4.2 PDC. For windows this is clear but how can this be done for linux clients. Joining the domain has been succesfull with powerbridge.

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Try to manually enter the shares by typing the the address of your PDC in nautilus or whatever file manager you are using for linux: smb://pdc_IP/share

    • Matei Cezar says:

      To see and edit the GPO install RSAT on a windows machine from your network!

      • Anchorite says:

        I have RSAT and been adding users from it. Also created GPO from Group Policy Management following instructions here but I also do not see GPO/GPL module under the Domain menu.

    So far, I’m finding Zentyal to be a real time saver. Would you anticipate any problems in doing file sharing on a BDC setup according to your tutorial in this series? I happen to have much more disk capacity on my BDC and would like to make use of it.

    Hi Matei when i share a folder from a windows client it prompts an admin and password authentication I am using a default policy and just want to allow normal users to share their folders to other users

  5. Matei Cezar says:

    Yes, I use ext4 on Zentyal and you can modify file share permissions from windows as long as that user has administrative permissions in that area, but better use Zentyal admin account to modify permissions not local stations.

  6. Bob says:

    Matei, your guides have been extremely helpful. I’m struggling a bit with permissions. I take it your file system in the demo is ext4 since you put the share ‘under zentyal’. Can you use a windows machine to manage permissions for this share? thanks again…
