A simple way to set up a basic workgroup file server
Authored by: gabester on May 16, '08 07:49:18AM

I have done something similar at a number of sites where I have helped set up servers. Usually I have had the advantage of imaging all the machines in question, so I was able to set them up with identical sets of accounts. As a final couple of steps, add each user to the workgroup user's group membership, then delete the workgroup user account (the group will be retained because it has other members). As long as everyone has the same group membership the permissions issue is few and only the occasional periodic "chmod -R g+rwx" away.
