Hello samba experts,
I want to configure samba with mysql as backend. I searched on google
and i found some info about this subject but it seems to be not really
what i nedd. I said this because i found few howtos about how to
configure samba to read password from mysql database to authenticate
users. Is good but not enough. I don't want shell users with different
password for samba!!! I want ONLY VIRTUAL USERS (no one shell account)
and al of them MUST resides in mysql database with all attributes (home
directory, UID, GID, password, domain, etc).....
Google said that my problem is not well documented and in the past was
some tryes about this subject. I found also some info about samba and
pam_mysql plugin. I've configured few weeks ago this plugin to
authenticate users for postfix smtp, and everithing was ok. Actually, i
want to do the same work with samba, but i don't know if samba-2.2.7
Can anybody point me to the right way? Some success stories about this
subject will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
