is samba the culprit?


i am in the middle of a situation i have never been .

i was trying to implement the single sign on to impress my boss.

i did it using samba 3.0.4 and kerberos.i am using red hat 9.0

i changed the gdm file and then all was ok for a few hours. i invited some users to log in and they logged in successfuly. directories were also created on the fly.

but then....

the domain controllers stopped the logons.

even the admins couldnt logon to there systems.

so is this some thing to do with samba messing up with AD or is it a virus?

One place to check might be the Samba log files:

cd /var/log/samba/ , then li (See what log files are available)

then "su" from a terminal then,

tail -f /var/log/samba/????? will keep a running log (constantly updating) of whatever log you want to sniff at

You can see all of the log file using an editor (in su mode)

Hope this gvies you a starting point!
