Recently installed Fedora core 6 to support, amongst other
things, Radius-based JANET roaming service.
(http://www.ja.net/roaming/) To do that we want to authenticate
against our existing Windows Active Directory, and are hoping to
use ntlm_auth as described at
Samba (& everything else) installed as default on Fedora, and
updated to current level with yum:
samba.i386 3.0.23c-2 installed
All of Samba seems to work except ntlm_auth. PAM, krb5, and
niss are configured, winbindd is running. We can join the
domain, list resources, use smbclient, & so on.
When we try ntlm_auth we see this:
ntlm_auth: error opening config file /etc/samba/smb.conf. Error
was Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
But /etc/samba/smb.conf is perfectly fine as far as we can tell.
Also we see the same error when using a 0-byte empty
