I am still batteling with winbind, and frankly, i am getting
desperate enough to long for a weekend without any computers in sight
(that is bad for an addict)
I know I probably make a small stuid blunder but still, I cant find
it. The attachment is my smb.conf file. I created the needed paths, I
even made sure the ermissions are set!
I created asmbusers file with contains the following line:
root = Administrator admin
Then I added a user root to the smbpasswd file
smbpasswd -a root
after a couple of errors that the smbpasswd file doesnt exists it
becomes smart enough to create the file.
Then I made the neccessary changes in my /etc/nsswitch.conf file
as an added bonus I tried to "join" the samba to its own domain
(Dunno if that should be working, but it doesnt!)
rpc net join -S SMB3-MAIN -U root
Could not connect to server SMB3-MAIN
(I checked the processtatus, and everything is running!)
Then I started the winbind daemon, and typed in
error looking up domain users
I give up. can anyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me where I goofed up,
and that I am a stupid dutchman for doing so?
Thanks and a great weekend everyone!
