I recently installed samba and winbind on a Ubuntu 6.06 server. The purpose was to move a huge file depot containing user home drives on a windows 2000 server to this Ubuntu server. I followed the instructions here - ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=91510 and the install went through smoothly.
My problem is that AD users can map to their shares via Windows XP that samba creates for them when they initially logon to the Ubuntu server but the AD users are unable to write or delete anything via Windows XP. I just had a handful use ssh to access the server and this created their home drives. Now, I can logon to the Ubuntu server locally and :
ssh any AD user@localhost
The test.txt will be created in their home drive and then be seen from Windows XP but they can't edit it, delete it or copy anything into their home drive. I imagine I've skipped something or done something stupid on my part but I can't figure it out. Any ideas?
I added the nt acl support = yes in hopes that I could mirror some of the security on the windows 2000 server.
Here is the smb.conf file :
security = ads
netbios name = PCNAME
realm = DOMAIN.COM
password server = server.domain.com
workgroup = DOMAIN
idmap uid = 500-10000000
idmap gid = 500-10000000
winbind separator = +
winbind enum users = no
winbind enum groups = no
winbind use default domain = yes
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
client use spnego = yes
domain master = no
nt acl support = yes
path = /home/DOMAIN/
read only = Yes
browseable = No
