I have an NT 4.0 cluster and a unix cluster on the same subnet.
The unix cluster uses NIS. On both clusters, I've defined the user
"joe", with the same password.
I want joe to be able to login to NT and see his unix home dir.
[I've done this before under SunOS 4.1.3.]
"Mine" is a unix NIS client, with a local disk with joe's home dir.
It is an Indigo2 running irix 6.2. I compiled and installed samba 1.9.18p3
using the native cc, and ran the smbd and nmbd.
I then ran the samba tests in DIAGNOSIS.txt. The first 7 tests worked.
For test 8, I logged as joe on NT 4, and did
net view \\mine
This failed. Got "System error 5. Access is denied".
Samba was compiled using the recommended flags
FLAGSM = -DSGI6 -DSHADOW_PWD -DHAVE_TIMEZONE -DFAST_SHARE_MODES
I recompiled with these
FLAGSM = -DSGI6 -DHAVE_TIMEZONE -DFAST_SHARE_MODES -DNETGROUP
After reinstalling, the test 8 above gives the same error.
I tried compiling using gcc 2.8.0. But it then fails the
test "smbclient -L mine".
For all of the above, I've used the default smb.conf file,
with only the following changes -
workgroup = A11
hosts allow = 126.96.36.199/255.255.255.0
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
; public = yes
where my NT cluster is called "A11", and the subnet is
"201.110.14". Actually, it's another IP range, which I don't wish
to reveal. But the IPs are correct. From the NT and "mine", I can
ping each other.
