Grouping PCs into different groups using Samba

Grouping PCs into different groups using Samba

Good Evening!!

     I have just replaced our NT server with Linux.  So far, we have no
problems except when
grouping PCs intto different groups. I can only access 2 groups (using
Network Neighborhood) while
the other groups cannot be accessed. When we transfer a PC from a group
that cannot be accessed
to a group that can be accessed, it also becomes accessible. However, we
want the computers to
belong to their respective groups. It seems that Samba can only handle 2
groups. Does anybody
knows how I can make Samba recognize multiple groups (3 or more) in one
network. Any help
would be greatky appreciated.



1. cannot set up UMASK or groups so that users from one group cannot access other groups


First let me describe what I would like to set up to clarify things:


I would like to set up 3 groups, lets call them A, B, C. Users from A should
have access files created by users in B or C. Users in B or C cannot access
files created by users in A. Also users in B or C should not have access to
each others files.

How would I set up Umask to handle this? I've tried to create a primary
group for all and secondary groups to reflect the permissions I'm after, but
to no avail.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.
