I am trying to set up a samba server for a few shared directories on AIX 5.3.
It is running in a Windows 2000 domain. It now seems to share properly, but
swat does not accept any login ID. I set up swat with the /etc/services and
/etc/inetd.conf entries as per the manual. When I use a browser to
"http://myserver:901" I get a login box for name and password, but it does not
accept the root password.
My system is configured to authenticate with ADS, but I am not using winbindd
as I still want to maintain permissions with the local Unix users and groups.
The swat log file shows the error:
smb_pam_passcheck: PAM: smb_pam_auth failed - Rejecting User root !
Here is the global section of my smb.conf:
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
realm = MYDOMAIN.COM
server string = Samba Server
security = ADS
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
local master = No
dns proxy = No
hosts allow = 172.16.2., 172.16.100., 127.
username map = /opt/pware/samba/3.0.24/lib/usermap.conf
