I'm trying to get a SUSE 9.1 workstation to join my windows domain, using logins from my windows domains. this might be foolish, or it might be something better attempted with xandrOS, but here's what i've encountered so far:
users from my domain show up in the login box, but when i attempt to login with those users, i get a box that says "xsession: login for domain\user is disabled" and has an "okay" button.
i found this thread:
and i made those changes.
now i can log in fine, but when KDE attempts to start up i get three errors:
/home/usr/.DCOPserver_k2node-16__0 check to see if your DCOPserver is running
"Will not save configuration
Configuration file "/home/usr/.kde/share/config/kwinrc" not writable
Configuration file "/home/usr/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals" not
Please contact your system admin."
$HOME is not writable
chown -R youruser:yourgroup /home/usr/.kde
should fix that, but since these are domain users, they have no local files, and i can't change permissions to those users, since they don't exist locally.
the reason i'm trying to do this is so that the users won't have to repeatedly authenticate when they want to browse network resources. if there's a better way to do this, that would be useful, too.
