Don't know a great deal about Gnome since I tend to work from the command line.

Perhaps you could post your difficulty re: Gnome as a separate thread.

You should be able to use Samba after the firewall issue has been resolved. Haven't heard of any firewall issues with Red Hat 9.0.

Peace.

I've disabled the Gnome gui and rebooted to the command line and - just to make sure - I stopped the iptables from the console.
But I'm still getting the message from the winserver "The domain controller for this domain cannot be located"!!!

I'm wondering about the smbusers file in /etc/samba. I would expect to find the cmoloney user there and the user mars$ (the Win server) there. Since they are not there does that point to an error somewhere or are these normally stored elsewhere?

Cmoloney,

How did you disable the firewall?

Please post your current smb.conf file.

Balam,

Please post your smb.conf file. Which Windows clients are you using on the first and second machines?

Sorry guys. I had to go away for a seminar. Thanks for your continuing interest.

I disabled the firewall by disabling the IPtables & IPchains.
Still no progress. All accounts are there as unix accounts & as samba accounts. But windows is persistent in refusing to see the domain.

Here is the current smb.conf file. It seems to have acquired some lines by itself.

Did you get yours fixed Balam?
cheers
Chris

Well this is a strange thing. In some desperation I went back & did a clean install of RH9 (with no firewall) and configured it as the samba pdc exactly according to the ibm tutorial. Before doing anything else I went to the LMHost file in /etc/samba and edited it to include all the servers in the network. Remarkably the NT server now sees the pdc and the pdc authenticates the ntserver .... but only if it logs on as Administrator (the default NT logon that -curiously- I didnt make on the Linux PDC). No sir! It will not log on to the domain as any of the users who have been created on the linux/samba pdc.
So it is begining to seem a little obvious that samba, as it is provided with RH9, is short of a few clues. Specifically the ones to recognise and integrate the user files in the linux and samba directories.
Maybe this is why all the folks on this board having samba problems are struggling to make it run on RH9.

I'm thinking now to junk the samba install that came with RH and to make a clean install from the samba.org tarball. But, I'm just wondering - bfore going through all that - if anyone can suggest another strategy that might be smarter and faster?
Thanks
Chris

Hmmmmm

I Agree with you, coz, I had problmes, useing the samba from redhat 9.0 too, so , I did think of that but I never considered the problem, seems that you find a bug on the hat.
that will explain why instlling samba from samba.org does work.
I will recomend you to download a tar ball and just install it <./configure make makeinstall>
do not need to rpm -e xxxxxxxsambaxxxx.rpm

let us know

Balam,
I too have been having 3 diffrent kinds of hell trying to get Samba to toalk to my Vendozes box and like you I keep coming up with
errors like "you maynot have permmision to browse this network" or Windows can not find a DNS. I never thought about a fire wall so I will check this-
I am runnng SuSE 8.2 pro. Which has proven to be relaible and stable for me.
My next question is that if I go with 3.0 Samba do I just install it over the exsisting one or do I remove 2.27.x first?

I can my Vendowzes in Linux side fine just the other side that get upset...

you no need to

remove the old samba . just make sure tha you have backup of your smb.conf file, ( copy it to a floppy)
then go to samba.org get a rpm ( I belive there is a rpm for redhat 9) or better get a tarball (aka samba3.tar.gz)
if you get the tarball make sure that you are root or su,
in order to run the commnad.
at the directory where you have samba aka /home/you/samba
do this

./configure ----this may take a some time

then when it finish ( you are back at the comand line)

type make

(this takes a long time even in a p4 box)

and finally when it finish

do this


make install

( this takes logn time too)

indeep-
the ./configure command make yur sistem ready for the software
the make well makes the source a binary to install
and finally make install install the software.

once done

restart samba

/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart

check fire wall on linux box.
remember create user on samba server
smbpasswd -a your-user-name

restart samba again

go to the damn window$ box open network and look for the linux box, doble click it if asks for user id and password type one (the you create on the samba server)
let us know how this goes.

best wishes.

by the way I am looking for ajob in linux I lost my job last week
damn Pratt and W. company.

Thanks Balam,
Sorry about your job- I went 9 mos with out a job- the first time then only to get laid off again after 3 mos- now I am fortunate to have this job at a Dr. Office as an Admin part time.
They say the market is getting better- I believe this but it hard when you can't find full time work.
Don't knw where you live but in Dallas it not the place to be in IT right now....

Did you guys get the Linux side of your network going BEFORE you tried to get samba running? or afterwards?

My network was already up and running.
I went ahead and down loaded Samba 3 and used Balam's script up above. IT wirks and IT ROCKS.

Make darn sure you can at least see your Vendows in a workgroup this way you know your networkis working.

Good luck,
