Hello to everybody.
I have sent this message a few weeks ago, and I haven't had any useful
response. I'll try again :-) because my problem continues.
I have one Samba server, 2.0 version, on solaris 2.6.
My server is the domain master and the wins server for the NT clients,
and it is running with encrypted passwords.
When I run the server with his name (his hostname), all is correct and
Nt clients can attach the domain, they can enter and they can execute
the logon script I have. Ok, right.
But, I would need to publish the server with another name, different
to his real name. For example: "NT_server". Then, I reboot the
daemons and the Samba server is on the right workgroup with the right
name, "NT_server", NT clients can attach the server and they can
browse the shares but the logon script is never executed.
If I try to execute manually, it says:
\\NT_server\netlogon isn't one valid path to the real directory.
UNC path's are not allowed.
Making predetermined the directory of Windows.
(I have one spanish version of NT and I have translated the message
I have tested it with debug level of 10 and I haven't seen anything
Is it possible to publish my server with a different name and to
continue executing the logon script?. Can somebody help me?.
Thank you in advance.
