Samba authentication - Lin/Win Network


Hello,

I'm admin of a network with a Windows 2000 server and Windows/Debian GNU Linux dual-boot clients. Each user of the clients have a login and a disk space in the server, which is shared after users' logon.

I used Samba, PAM and winbind to do the user/password authentication at Linux, it worked OK with Windows 2000 server and creates automatically /home/user-login at user logon, but I wanna know how can I configure Linux to mount the user's disk space too.

Can anyone help me?

Esdras

PS.: sorry by any english errors

Re: Samba authentication - Lin/Win Network

Hi there.

I have made it work (mounting of home dirs) in a similar environment, namely with a NT4 PDC.
What you should investigate is the pam_mount module.
Found here: http://www.flyn.org/projects/pam_mount/

What I still have to achieve is to actually get the mounted share to $HOME and get it to work with a login with GDM.
At the moment I haven't been able to remove/redirect the "locking files" made by X or related programs.
(Namely .ICEauthority and a few others if I am not mistaken)

Something tries to either set permissions or create som link that the smb fs does not support.

My machine is currently running the latest Fedora 1 with Gnome 2.4.
What I am doing now is mounting the smb home in a users subdir.
$HOME/home.

Does anybody know if there is a way to solve this problem with locking files and the smb filesystem?
That is, change location of the "locking" files to another destination, also writable/owned by the user in question. (Altough not $HOME).

I have the same problem. I haven't come up with a solution... but I was wondering if anybody had any workarounds they could tell me.
