I read the samba doc but i didn't find any answer to my problem, maybe
you can help me or just point me where to find the solution. That would
be very appreciated.
Our company has three offices in different cities plus a head office.
All of those office are linked using VPNs. For now, we have a domain at
the head office using samba3 as a PDC, a master LDAP server for
authentication. The other offices a configured as Workgroup (WG1, WG2
and WG3) and are relatively independant and on their own. We would like
to centralize all the information but keep the bandwith use to minimal.
I would like to setup a BDC and a LDAP slave in each office.
My concern is not about how to configure Samba and LDAP for
authentication. It is mostly on how can i tell samba where are the homes
of the users depending on wich user is logged in.We want to be sure that
each and every user will still be able to use their home in case the
link between our sites go down. The best way to work it out would
probably to place the homes of all the users of WG1 on the BDC that will
replace the server currently in place but it doesn't work. When a user
logs in, he authenticates on the BDC but all the rest of the logon
process is switch to the PDC.
I use "logon home", "logon path", "logon drive" and "logon script" in my
smb.conf and i'm trying to figure out how to modify my configuration.
I'm sure the solution is pretty simple but i'm still looking for it.
