Ok you guys are my last chance so here goes...
I tried to install samba3 via .rpm but Im getting a M$ password error (dont know it specifically, Im at work).
Ok so samba3 is installed I have and files setup for very basic operation until I get it working.
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
workgroup = WORKGROUP
log file = /var/log/samba3/log.%m
max log size = 50
; log level = 3
smb passwd file = /usr/bin/smbpasswd3
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
case sensitive = no
#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
path = /home/username
browseable = no
writable = yes
path = /usr/share/stuff
public = yes
writable = yes
valid users = username
#================================== <EOF> ====================================
ok, now the problem....I noticed the smbpasswd file within the samba3 directory doesnt work:
[root@servername samba3]# ls
lmhosts smb.conf smbldap_conf.pm smbusers
secrets.tdb smb.conf.old smbpasswd smb-winbind.conf
[root@empiricus samba3]# smbpasswd -a username
bash: smbpasswd: command not found
But I did notice there is the file smbpasswd3 in the /usr/bin dir BUT the permissions are
-rw------- 1 root root 838956 Feb 17 23:15 smbpasswd3
if I change the rights so root can execute the file appears to work fine, I get new user added...etc....
BUT the strange thing is that the permissions change back, removing execute?????? Anyone ever hear of something like this?
So I restart smbd3, goto my M$ machine and try to connect again the passwords still dont work.
The samba logs read:
[2004/03/10 10:56:17, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:getsmbfilepwent(376)
getsmbfilepwent: malformed password entry (no
After this Im pretty much lost. I know I have connectivity, I am being prompted for a logon and pass. Firewall should allow everything coming from the workstation (I can post the script too if needed) but its just not working.
Please help... I will affero you until the day I die!!!!
