Same name for Group and Shared folder impossible?


#1

Hi,
A group (named “direction”) already exists but I need to create a shared folder with the same name and I can’t:
.

I don’t have an account “direction”, just one group named “direction”

Is it a bug or must I change my way of managing groups and shared folders?


Permit to have the same name for shared folders and user/group

This is a SME legacy: groups, users and shared folders share the same database, so their name can’t be the same. I’d like to move shared folders to a separate DB in the future.

Thks for this answer. I come from Active Directory and Zentyal and I did not understand why it wasn’t possible to do it with NS. Now I know why.

No pb, I change my way to do it… :wink:
