Samba 2.2.7a fails to call add user script on Red Hat 9


I have successfully implemented winbind and I am able to authenticate user logging into a Redhat 9 box via SSH, against a Windows 2000 Active Directory server. Unfortunately, despite the fact that I have:
Code:
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd %u -c "Domain Account" -s /bin/bash -d /home/%u -m -n -g users
in my smb.conf, it's not being called. I know this because since I have
Code:
template homedir = /home/%U
also in the smb.conf, and an error:
Quote:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/bittondadmin: No such file or directory
is returned to the logging in user.

My smb.conf file is as follows:
Code:
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#
#======================= Global Settings =====================================

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
	workgroup = supremealarm

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
	server string = samba server

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page

Follow-up

After doing some more reading, it appears as if I need to use pam_mkhomedir.so in each pam config file. The problem that this poses, is that /home needs to be 777. Does anyone have a working example of this, particularly using gdm to login to the red hat 9 desktop.

Question Samba, Redhat 9 and Winbind

I am having the same problems you describe. I can get winbind to talk to the Windows 2000 PDC and when I issue "wbinfo-t" I get "secret is good" but I can't get the thing to add the users to my Samba box. Did you come up with any solutions?

dgdubya,

I don't understand what you want to do. Please clarify.

Do you have a Linux workstation and a Windows 2000 server?

The other person has given up already, so we cannot help him.
