First of all, thanks in advance for any response to this message. Groups
like this are a lifesaver.
I just took over an admin position for a small software company that
runs a Windows 2000 domain, in native mode, with a Samba 3 file server,
as a Domain Member, connecting to a password server which is the Windows
2000 Primary Domain Controller.
The domain controller runs a Wins server, used by Samba, and a DNS
server. I've since created a backup domain controller, which also hosts
DNS secondary zones for the domain, and a WINS server with real-time
push-pull from the WINS on the PDC.
Can I upgrade my PDC to Windows 2003 Server R2 without having to change
my current samba server configuration? Has anyone done this: upgrade a
Win 2000 Active Directory domain controller, running in Native Mode, to
a Windows 2003 R2 Server, and still had Samba work?
Here is a copy of the Global section of my config file:
workgroup = NYC-14
netbios name = SAN
server string = Storage Area Network
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = no
cups options = raw
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
security = ads
realm = nyc-14.knoa.com
password server = credo.nyc-14.knoa.com
wins server = 192.168.14.243
dns proxy = no
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
; winbind separator = \
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template shell = /bin/false
winbind use default domain = yes
As you can see, we're using winbind and using ads security.
Thanks for any help and advise!
