Hello List,
I have ADS authentication going for access to my shares.
I have local accounts for production equipment that need to map these
shares as well.
The accounts exist in the Unix backend and I added them to smbpasswd
with "smbpasswd -a"
But when trying to access a share I get an error below. What parameters
can I set to allow both ADS authentication for domain users and
smbpasswd for local accounts.
I can paste my smb.conf if necessary.
