Hi. I can't do cached logons in our new samba server.
I had a dead crashed W2k server quickly replaced by samba-3.
That meant create a new domain, restore backups and add all the
PCs to the domain. It was impossible to ressurrect the old MS server.
Anyway I'm facing a problem about cached logons. There is no way
to make it work. I've been reading all the entries in the mailing
list archives and MS information about it unsuccessfully.
First of all, some people said in the archives that samba can't
do cached logons, that's later refuted by people who log all
the summer in a networkless computer. So it looks it should work.
Is there something required in the samba server to make it work ?
We have no ldap. Remote profiles were allowed the first day
but now it is turned off.
I've checked the registry here. It was 10 now 50. Nothing changed.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon\
Data Type: REG_SZ
Values: 0 - 50
The former windows admin said he changed nothing to make it work in
w2k. It just worked.
Clients are Windows XP.
Server is a debian etch, samba-3.0.24-6. An extract from smb.conf:
obey pam restrictions = Yes
passdb backend = tdbsam
logon script = \usuari\%U.bat
logon drive = Z:
logon home = \\%N\netlogon
domain logons = Yes
domain master = Yes
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes
comment = Network Logon Service
path = /home/samba/netlogon
write list = @admin
guest ok = Yes
Any hint will be really appreciated.
