Samba ADS and Windows 2K domain


I'm running Fedora Core 4 on a network w/ a windows 2000 domain. I set up the Authentication on the Fedora box to use samba and winbindd. I can log in as windows users using DOMAIN/username and password. Works fine no problem there. I can access any shares on my network from the Fedora box. I have to enter my windows password in everytime which is a bit cumbersome. My biggest problem is that I cannot access any shares on the Fedora box from any of my windows systems. I'm not sure why I can access windows shares from Fedora, but not the other way around. Anyone running into this problem?

This is most likely a "plaintextpassword" issue which you can resolve eith by editing the registry (just search for that term) or by editing group policy on the windows machine (if you get policy from the AD then do it there)

The policy you want to change is anything along the lines of "send unencrypted password to third party SMB servers" AND "digitally sign communications (always)" (set this to disabled and the one below to enabled).

Could you explain a bit further. Which do I enable and which do I disable? If I am using encrypted passwords in Samba, why should I have to send them in plain text? When I did a search for the string "plaintextpassword" on my domain controller, I could not find it. I did find it on one of my other machines.

Hi,

Plaintextpassword in the registry will probably only be found on the client machine.

If you use encrypted passwords with samba then this may not be the source of your problem but is still worth checking. Try to disable teh firewall on Linux box just to test that it is not causing any probs.

Enable "Send unencrypted password"
Disable "Digitally sing communications"

Then try to change other settings which look as though they should be changed.

I beleive microsoft have a good article on this so it might be worth searching their site.

HTH

John
