I have just struggled to implement a Samba Domain Server, and have some
I have a Samba PDC using tdbsam, managing a domain called RHEA.
I have (finally) configured a new Samba Domain Server (AUREUS) using
winbind and idmap_rid.
When I am logged in to RHEA as user GMCH I can access a TMP share on
AUREUS (at last).
Running 'getent passwd' I get (inter alia):
and 'getent group' gives:
When I create files on TMP I find that they are owned by 'root' and in
the group 'RHEA\domain users', eg:
-rwxr--r-- 1 root RHEA\domain users 8 Feb 8 20:29 Hello Samba
The group is fine.
QUESTION: why is the file owner not RHEA\gmch ?
I note that 'RHEA\gmch' and 'RHEA\domain users' are apparently disabled
as far as getent can see -- so I suppose that's what winbindd is telling
it. Is this the problem ?
BTW I discover that it is a good idea to set 'root' in the tdbsam, along
with groupmap for 'Domain Admins' etc. Windows then reports ownership
