FreeNAS and Samba (SMB) permissions (Video)

Western Digital Drives - The Preferred Drives of FreeNAS and TrueNAS CORE
Great videos. as time past very fast something like this for a newer version would be great, maybe with further details about ACL on TrueNAS, and some best practices, just for newer versions.
Otherwise great resource.
As a TrueNAS noob I was struggling to get SMB sharing working. I followed this video step by step and voila it bust into life! 5 stars. A refresh for the TueNAS GUI would be nice though.
This seems is a nice simple resource, should work great, but for whatever reason when I do these steps I get blocked at the windows login prompt, and Im sure my credentials are correct so I don't know why it refuses to work.
An excellent introduction that helps a beginner like myself figure out the subtleties of the user/group/share relationship.
Great video, however if m0nkey can do an updated one for 11.2 that would be awesome :)
Just awesome
As a person with very little knowledge, with this kinda stuff, I found myself getting frustrated with this video, thank you for providing something, just, basic enough for a person like myself, to get freenas working, once again thank you very much.
server is working perfectly. :0-)-=
I've found this very helpful recently. Thank you very much.
Everything you need to know and see to make sure you can map shares from your FreeNAS inside Windows.
Awesome, explains and helps a lot. Thanks!
Easy to follow and allows the user to avoid easy pitfalls.
Hi M0nkey, thanks for your perfect video! It took me a day to figure out that Samba permissions must be configured on a client PC instead of the NAS itself. Strange way to configure, but it's working. When you upgrade this video, it would be helpfull to mention in the beginning that FreeNAS can't change SMB permissions on it's own. Next thing to do is investigate some time to get these permissions executed in Linux. Again, perfect tutorial!!!

Nice summary how to enroll with fileshaing properly.
Extremely helpful.
Excellent introduction to Windows/SMB permissions, enough to get you to a point where you can start exploring on your own.
