[Samba] mapping home directories using samba/ADS when users accts
lsmith at fau.edu
Wed Dec 3 22:35:08 GMT 2003
Am currently migrating from a samba/nis authentication scheme to
authentication thru Active Directory. I currently have everything set
up and "ready to go" with one minor caveat.
new users are set up correctly, with authentication through AD and have
a unix drive mapped to their W2k work stations.
however, pre-existing student accounts are not synchronized. There is
no way to tell at this point whether jsmith1 on the samba box matches
jsmith on the AD.
Shortly, I will have the data I need from the registrar to match our
user list against theirs, but I'm not sure how to get samba to "read"
this information. Where can I go about in (samba?) setting up a
configuration that will read a mapping of samba/unix uid to the windows
Does this make *any* sense?
All I want at this point is to RTFM, so if someone can point me to a FAQ
about incorporating prior users into a new AD/Samba authentication/drive
mapping scheme, that would be great.
