Post samba login script


Hi All

I configured samba on rh 7.2 and it is working fine. All the windows clients are able to login in box with their smblogin.
I tried to run login script for samba users (similar to netware) with one or two utilities like SLOT and webmin but could not succeed. Can anybody help me out.

Waiting for intelligent reply.

Regards
Bally

Just edit the smb.conf file and setup the "netlogon" share and the "logon script" variable to point to the logon script.

I suggest you create the script on windows then copy it to the server using samba. This will overcome any newline problems.

Dear David

My samba file is as under:
Kindly tell it in simple language about the modification, which are to be done in this file.

# 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 =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = eies
netbios name = bally
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = bally 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
#; hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

Add:
logon script = logon.bat

Below:
; logon script = %U.bat

Then create a file called logon.bat in:
/home/netlogon

Restart samba:
/etc/init.d/smb restart

Then login again.
