I am trying to configure Samba as file server in our Windows based
network.We have a 2000 DC & all of our clients(80) use
95/98/2000.I have Installed Solaris 8(IA) and configure Samba.
Now the problem is that I cant configure the smb.conf to contain
all the shares for all the users.Rather I would like to use the
[Homes] section in the smb.conf file to generate shares
automatically for all users.For that I configure Winbind to talk
to my DC.I get all the expected results with the winbind.When I do
a "getent passwd" I get the usual unix (/etc/passwd)stlye username
list.In smb.conf I configured Template homedir to
/export/home/%D/%U.So now If I logon to a system & access the
SOlaris system using Network Neighborhood I should see my home
directory share automatically which I dont see.If I have same user
accounts on Solaris box & DC ,I am able to see the users
homedirectory share.Some1 please help me how can I configure samba
in my kind of environment easily without having same user accounts
on SOlaris as well as dc.
