Setting up the Incoming Samba Share

The following steps need to be run as root.

  1. Create a user for samba logins to use: useradd -M -s /sbin/nologin digitize
    • A group of the same name is needed and this group will be created on Red Hat systems by default.
  2. Next add dmlserv to the digitize group just created: usermod -G digitize dmlserv
  3. Give a samba password and add the new user: smbpasswd -a digitize
  4. Create the samba share by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf:
    [digitization]
            comment = Variations 3 Content
            path = /home/dmlserv/content/loader
            valid users = digitize
            writeable = yes
            create mask = 775
            directory mask = 775
    
  5. Restart samba to apply the new settings: /etc/init.d/smb restart
  6. Change the owning group of the audio and score incoming directories:
    chgrp digitize /home/dmlserv/content/loader/audio/incoming
    chgrp digitize /home/dmlserv/content/loader/score/incoming

reviewing

This is already done in Hosted Partner Streaming Server Installation except for chgrp on ../score/incoming.

Maybe because we only have ../loader/audio, no ../loader/score.
