Samba administration from GUI


Hi all.

Maybe this question has been asked a thousand times, but I didnīt find my answer:

I have a samba server running as PDC fir my windows Domain.
I followed the books / instructions on the web, and it works.

Now: In windows you have the usermanager to see to which groups someone belongs, easily add groups / users and so on.

Is there something similar for samba? So, somekind of usrmgr for Samba? I want to see what groups are there, and which people belong to that group.

I ran into this when I was on my windowsbox trying to addmyself to "Domain Admins"

Is there any (GUI) tool for this? It would be great if i could just use the Usermanager from windows, or any oher Win App to achieve this.

THanks!

There are a few - see:

But I don't recommend them as I have seen the likes of swat and webmin destroy config and password files. What ever you do - make backups first.

David, thanks....

The only tool coming close to what i had in mind was LAM. The other ones are for creating the smb.conf (or indeed messing it), and thats not what i wanted. However LAM requires LDAP and I am not familiar with that. So, Thats a nice thing to dive in next time.

Are there any other programs to do user / machine administration?

try gnosamba, you can find it at linux.org
and also you can go for LinNeighborhood for easy samba control (like searching machines, mounting samba drives, creating groups etc)

I can't seem to find that one????

But is that what i am looking for?

I want to use a graph-tool (preferrable from windowz) to put users in to groups, and see wich groups thay belong to and so on....

TIA
