So far we have samba server (RedHat), that manages with users and
network drives (users login to domain). All machines in the network are
Win95/98/2000/XP. But now we are trying to test some Linux (RedHat at
the moment) workstations... How can users "login to domain" in the Linux
machine, so that the same username-passwords are used and appropriate
network-drives are automaticly mapped (every user has his home directory
(which resides actually on another server) and some network-drives are
mapped according to groups)?
Well I can do local account in the linux-box with the same username and
use "authconfig" to configure SMB authentication. So login is possible
with same username/password this way, but is it neccesary to create
local account in linux-box for every user?
And mapping network-drives is easy using smbmount when there is one
user... But how can mapping be done, when there is more than one user??
