Well I finaly got samba to use my PDC for logons. My problem now is I cant seem to use my NT box to set file permissions on my samba shares that are in my Mandrake 9.0 box. I always get an access denied error. I can browse my shares but am unable to write any files to them.
I also need to know if there is a way that I can creat the user directories as the users login? Or do I need to make them all before they login?
here is a copy of my smb.conf:
workgroup = HOMENET
netbios name = VETTY
server string = Linux server
security = DOMAIN
encrypt passwords = Yes
null passwords = Yes
password server = transam
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*p
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=819
printcap name = lpstat
domain admin group = Homenet
domain master = No
dns proxy = No
wins server = transam
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
winbind separator = +
printing = cups
nt acl support = yes
comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No
The problem is how do I get the Homenet groups into the linuxbox? When I use "usermod -g root homenet+administrator" I get this reply back
"usermod: homenet+administrator not found in /etc/passwd" I use the getent comand but that just prints out a list of my users from from both the Linux side and the NT side. is this suppose to update the /etc/passwd file?
Do i understand this.... you want to add Homenet and Administrator in the root group? If it is so, then type "adduser homenet root" and "adduser administrator root" - Give a password to Homenet and Administraotor as root with "passwd homenet" .....
Homenet ie... is the name of my domain at home. so that "Homenet+administrator" is the "domain\account" that I want to use to set permissions on my server.
What I want to do is be able to assign permissions to linux files and directories using my NT domain users and groups. I also want to have all of my users and there passwords managed from my NT PDC. Right now I cant seem to do this.
