How to Modify SMB Group Properties

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Modify one or more SMB group properties.
    $ smbadm set-group -p property=value [[-p property=value] ...] group-name

    You can specify one or more property-value pairs on the command line. Each property-value pair must be preceded by the -p option. Valid values for privileges are on or off. The value of the description property is an arbitrary text string.

    For example, to grant the backup privilege and to modify the description of the wsales group, type:

    $ smbadm set-group -p backup=on \
    -p description="Sales force for the Western region" wsales

    For more information about available group properties, see the smbadm(8) man page.
