Univention Bugzilla – Bug 32882
Improve Share module layout / texts
Last modified: 2013-11-19 06:42:04 CET
While working on Bug #21556 and #18708 improvements will be made to the umc-share module's layout and texts, based on internal discussions.
Text and layout has been improved in
r45167 univention-directory-manager-modules 9.0.62-2.1128.201310161404
Uid bei Root-Zugriff umlenken / Redirect root access uid :
We should mention "root squashing" here. Proposed version:
DE: "User-ID für Root-Benutzer ändern (Root-Squashing)"
EN: "Modify user ID for root user (root squashing)"
Benutzergruppe für das Wurzelverzeichnis der Freigabe. Vorgabe ist root
Besitzergruppe für das Wurzelverzeichnis der Freigabe.
(The "Vorgabe ist root" is redundant, since it's visible in the select box anyway)
(The English version is already correct)
Erlaubte Hosts, IP-Adressen oder Netze
-> Zugriff nur für diese Rechner, IP-Adressen oder Netze erlauben
Allowed hosts, ip addresses or networks
-> Only allow access for these hosts, IP addresses or networks
This makes it more explicit that the default is "allow all"
Anonymen Zugriff mit Gastbenutzer erlauben
Allow anonymous access with a guest user
Anonymen Nur-Lese-Zugriff mit Gastbenutzer erlauben
Allow anonymous read-only access with a guest user
This makes is more clear that it's limited to read-only accesses.
For the "MS-DFS root" option a link to the manual would be useful (e.g. in a tooltip or as part of the menu):
"Users with write access" should rather be on the "Samba permissions" tab than the "Samba options" tab
(This is a long-standing bug that I noticed when updating the docs, it can also be split off):
In the UMC "Strict Locking" is currently a boolean option, while according according to the manpage it's actually an enumerated type, i.e. the actual Samba default ("auto") cannot be configured in the UMC.
Block Größe -> Blockgröße
Zugelassene Rechner -> Zugelassene Rechner/Netze (likewise for English and for "Nicht zugelasse Rechner")
(The option allows the configuration of hosts and networks, configuring a long list of hostnames is impractical anyway)
Liste von Schreibberechtigten / Users with write access:
Schreibberechtigung auf diese Benutzer/Gruppen beschränken / Restrict write access to these users/groups
This makes it more explicit what the default is and it also mentions that the configuration can be made for users or groups
The option "Inherit ACLs" doesn't have any effect in UCS. Quoting from the manpage:
| Note that using the VFS modules acl_xattr or acl_tdb which store native Windows
| as meta-data will automatically turn this option on for any share for which
| they are loaded, as they require this option to emulate Windows ACLs correctly.
samba-shares.py automatically adds acl_xattr or acl_tdb to each share (depending on the UCR variable samba4/ntacl/backend), so this share setting is moot and can be removed.
Inherit owner -> Create files/directories with the owner of the parent directory
Inherit permisions -> Create files/directories with permissions of the parent directory
(Likewise for German)
Text/layout changes have been incorporated.
'strict locking' is no longer a checkbox but a select widget with the options auto, yes, no. The new default value is the smb.conf default: auto
r45501 univention-directory-manager-modules 9.0.69-3.1138.201310231149
changelog updated with 'strict locking' information
* please remove the Group( _( )) definition in the layout for
advanced Tabs (advanced), otherwise the options are under e.g.
[Advanced settings] -> [Samba Permissions] -> [Samba Permissions]
'Samba extended permissions'
'Samba custom settings'
'NFS custom settings'

* i can still see the "Inherit ACLs" option
* why are the options "Allowed hosts/networks" and "Denied hosts/networks"
in "Samba Options" and not in "Samba permissions"
* change "Besitzer des freigegebenen Verzeichnisses" to
"Besitzer des Wurzelverzeichnis der Freigabe"
* please remove the "." at the end of
"Benutzergruppe für das Wurzelverzeichnis der Freigabe."
(In reply to Felix Botner from comment #14)
> * please remove the "." at the end of

And it should read Besitzergruppe instead of Benutzergruppe
One additional issue:
In "Samba custom settings" there's an input field named "Schlüssel/Key". This is rather technical and should rather be labelled:
"Optionsname aus smb.conf / Option name in smb.conf"
Other than the issues mentioned by Felix it looks good to me in English and German.
Layout and texts have been improved according to the suggestions.
> In "Samba custom settings" there's an input field named "Schlüssel/Key".
> This is rather technical and should rather be labelled:
This is a generic widget, the "Key/Value" texts can only be changed by developing individual widgets. I opted to change the text before the widget to
> "Optionsname aus smb.conf / Option name in smb.conf"
and improved the tool tip. I think this is enough.
no changelog update necessary.
OK - Changelog
