I'm trying to mount a samba share with 777 permissions but I can't seem to get this working. I can get my share to mount using both fstab and autofs, but the permissions out of the box are 755.
Here's an example from my fstab file:

I am running Samba 4.6 on FreeBSD 11 with ZFS. Each user belongs to the fileserver group. In addition, there are additional groups for each department, such as sales group.
And here comes my problem. On the server is a folder called sales. Which is owned by fileserver and the group sales. Why...
I am using Samba as a Standard Alone File server. Security = user
Why is Samba not taking the home directory path from the entry that I can change with pdbedit? When I use the variables %H it will only return the path setup in the /etc/passwd file.

I need to set up samba. I reviewed this page here https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Samba_as_a_Standalone_Server but it didn't get me far as I couldn't create a samba user. I'm assuming the samba documentation is right, but there is no such thing as useradd.
Is there a...

I'm migrating our network storage on to a FreeBSD machine with Samba 4.5, FreeBSD 11 (currently 11-STABLE built on 22nd).

I have an SMB client (10.3-RELEASE-p11) and SAMBA server (11.0-RELEASE-p1) running samba43-4.3.13_2.
On the client I have /etc/nsmb.conf with stored credentials.

After some of the system upgrades (I'm using synth) SMB gfvs functionality in x11-fm/pcmanfm stopped working.
At the closer look I've noticed that devel/gvfs still depends on (and installs) net/samba-libsmbclient which the ports system now says is obsoleted:
