I have been running samba 2.2.8a with approx 400 users accessing it for
their network drives. What I need to do now is to upgrade it to version
3.0.6. I have been trying to upgrade my development system with limited
success this is what I have done.
stopped samba
used the same configure options as when I installed 2.2.8a i.e
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
--enable-shared=yes --with-acl-support --with-winbind --with-quotas
make clean
make install
cd nsswitch
cp libnss_winbind.so /lib
started samba
wbinfo -t says the secret is good
wbinfo -g returns groups
wbinfo -u returns users
getnet passwd lists users
so all seems well untill I go to my home directorys which are located
if I do a directory listing it now looks like this
drwxrws---  22  16043 CITDOM+Domain Admins    4096 Aug 9 15:46 op86v
it should look like this
drwxrws---  22  CITDOM+OP86V CITDOM+Domain Admins    4096 Aug 9 15:46 op86v
getnet passwd|grep op86v returns
CITDOM+OP86V:x:16043:10000:User Name:/smb/homes/op86v:/bin/false
If I type chown citdom+op86v op86v (or CITDOM+OP86V)
I get invalid user
If I type chown OP86V op86v it works but is using a uid of 20266
Can anybody point me in the right direction as to how to get this to work
correctly, i.e I would like to move from 2.2.8a to 3.0.6 with out having to
change uids etc.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might be able to give
