I received a reply, but I cannot read the language of
your reply. There is a work around I thought of and I
will explain it. The auto login feature in Windows XP
could be used to keep users logged on. A program
could be written that would require them to respond
before allowing any other program to run. I believe
the term for this is a modal window. This program
would validate their user information. If they are
not a valid user, the system would log them off. If a
program like this existed that could interact with the
samba user information it would be a way around the
I have a general question about samba. I purchased NT
4 Server and it was working well. However, I have
Windows 2000/XP Clients that are having problems. The
problem is that domain users are considered users and
not power users. Domain users cannot edit the
registry. I have tried everything I can think of to
fix this, but I can't get it to work.
If samba would allow my Windows 2000/XP clients to be
NT 4 Domain Guest Power Users, my problem would be
solved. By design, guest profiles are deleted when
the user logs off the local computer.
-I want them to be guests so that they use the
default user profile when they log on. I do
not want a bunch of local profiles to be
maintained when they log off.
-I want them to be power users so they can edit
I know how to set up local users as guest power users,
but I can't figure out how to get domain users to be
guest power users.
>From what I have read, Windows 2000 Active Directory
Server allows domain users to be power users. I do
not need Active Directory if samba can solve the
I would gladly switch to samba if this problem is
solved. Thank you for your assistance with this
matter! I am looking forward to your reply!!!
