I recently upgraded a samba 2.8 system to samba 3.0 dl'ed from samba.org
current. Everything works great except the group mapping and some net
sessions that get stuck but I want to focus on the groupmap issue today.
Things I have done:
Delete group_mapping.tdb -- restarted samba -- net groupmap modify
ntgroup='Domain Admins' unixgroup=ntadmins -- result: shows that it's mapped
but no dice. The users in ntadmins group still do not have access to domain
admin stuff like being able to log into every workstation and have full
rights like samba 2.8 Domain Admin group option. I like groupmap better
side note: While working on this issue a couple of weeks ago I deleted the tdb
and restarted smb .. it worked!!! but then I went to do a modify and it
stopped working .. right back to where I started.. ughh.
1. During the upgrade is it possible that something got corrupted (anything
that would have affected this feature)?
2. Did I leave any important settings or configs out? etc...
3. My smb.conf is pretty basic.. right out of the build with modifications
only to use smbpasswd backend and some other services for directories.
But.. If you want I can post it.
1. I am not opposed to rebuilding smb from source (newer source) if it will
fix the problem easier than hunting down the bad files.
2. Fix the bad files ( if it's time effective)
3. Switch to Win2003 (ooohh sorry no one wants to do that :)
John T: I have committed to memory the groupmap section of the howto, with
some other fav sections :) Thanks for providing such a valuble and effective
