I'm setting up my first AD-like setup on samba 3, but I'm having a
I have the primary and backup DC with an LDAP backend set up and
working fine. File shares, profiles, netlogon, all works fine as long
as they are on the PDC.
Now I want to move shares and profiles to a separate server, which I
set up as a domain member. I configured users' home directories in
the LDAP backend, and they are properly mounted; I configured
profiles directories, and the client sort of see them.
Still, profiles are no go. I enabled logging on the clients, and I
see XP manages to mount the profiles share, creates the user's dir,
but then something wierd happens: the new directory appears to belong
to FS/user, not DOMAIN/user !
I investigate the problem more, and this is what I'm seeing (and I'm
not experienced enough to tell whether it's right or wrong):
the domain controller (KDC) has a sid:
the file server (FS) has its own sid:
when I log in to the XP machine, my user has a user sid (in addition
to several groups), which corresponds to DOMAIN/acampi:
but its home directory, and any file it own appears to belong to FS/
and thus I'm NOT the owner.
It looks like samba does know the directory and files belong to
acampi (the Unix user), but when sending ownership information it
uses its own sid, which of course is useless...
