How to allow using a Microsoft Account (e.g. [email protected]) to access a share instead of using a Windows Local User?
From SSH of your UnRAID Server type the below commands
mkdir -p /boot/config/custom/etc/samba nano /boot/config/custom/etc/samba/usermap.txt
Add the following, replacing user with your unraid username name and replacing [email protected] with your Microsoft account email address
user = [email protected]
Press CTRL + X and then Y to save and exit
Now stop your array and go to your SMB settings in the GUI and add the following line under the Samba extra configuration section
username map = /boot/config/custom/etc/samba/usermap.txt
Now simply start the array and everything should work as expected and you should no longer have a problem to use your [email protected] Microsoft user account to login into your Unraid Samba share.
