I'm running RH Linux 6.0 and Samba 2.0.5a - My userids were pretty high
(290000) and although Linux didn't mind, and Netatalk+asun didn't mind,
samba refused connections saying:
Couldn't set effective uid to 262969. Currently set to (real=0,eff=0).
Error was Invalid argument.
Could be your OS doesn't like high uid values - try using a different
Can't become connected user!
The result on the users side (Win9x clients) was a dialog box asking
for a password to the requested service.
Any thoughts? I wrote a script to move around UID's on the fly when
Samba users connect- It takes them an extra second initialy, but it
works as a stop gap solution. Any ideas?
