Thanks for any information and your time!!!
I have been working on getting my samba 2.2.5 server to work with my 2K
domain in (native mode). Setup is on a RH 7.3 system with two NIC's one
on a Internet network the other is for the LAN.
What I need is to get the XP/2K/4.0 systems to see the samba shares and
us them based on the users and groups that are on the domain. This is a
2K AD Domain.
I have performed the following:
Setup the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
Change the /etc/pam_smb.conf file.
Changed the /etc/nsswitch.conf file.
Changed the /etc/pam.d/system-auth and samba files.
Set smb and winbindd to start with the system.
Added the samba system to the domain using smbpasswd -j XXX -r XXX -U
To test I did the following:
Used smbclient -L (samba and domain server) -U domain+user%password. I
was able to get connected to the servers. and get to the information
that only the user was able to get to.
wbinfo -t = could not check the secret.
wbinfo - m = could not list trusted domains
wbinfo - u = error looking up domain users.
Is there any configuration that I need to do with LDAP?
Thanks again!
