I make heavy use of my LE box beside TV, Netflix, Video and Music also as a media-server for all other devices in the house. I have huge HDD capacity and so I think how I can use it also as a backup server for the computers. I have already created a script that switches Samba between read-only and read-write, because we know that it is not a good idea to give continuous write permissions for computers to their backup. But this is not very handy....
So I saw that it is possible to have samba or Apple afp (timemachine) in a container. My 1st test was not so easy, I deactivated samba in LE and tried to generate users in a samba-container. So the question arises in my mind, if it is possible to run a container on a single User system, that uses more than one user to manage different shares? Does LE support the "adduser" etc. commands that are necessary to maintain different users and their access rights in samba?? Password db file etc.?
Can anybody confirm or has experience ?
