Setting up a temporary Samba Member Server as part of a domain with real
NT4 PDC and BDC machines. In two months the NT domain will go away to
be replaced by Samba/LDAP PDC and BDCs, but for now I'm stuck using
Actually, I'm just stuck!
The Samba box is running SuSE 9.0 and Samba 3.0.4-5 installed from the
SerNet rpms (ftp.sernet.de).
I followed chapter 9.3.2 in Samba-3 By Example, changing only the
network-specific values in the example smb.conf file, and also leaving
out the winbind separator value to get the default '\' separator. So,
no need to waste bandwidth posting smb.conf here since we all own
John's fine book already. :-)
Everything works fine from the Samba machine, but trying to browse from
a Windows machine doesn't work properly.
From a Windows machine I can do Start > Run > \\shiraz and get a window
with all of the shares listed. But when I double-click on a share's
icon, I get repeatedly challenged for a username and password.
The permissions on the directories underlying the shares on the Samba
box allow anyone to read and write to them.
So, I have a feeling something is not quite right with Winbind.
Is there a way I can "reset" the configuration and start from scratch?
Just in case I did indeed mess something up?
