I have a strange issue with Samba 4 as an AD DC regarding GPO creation.
I use the following packages on Debian wheezy:
dpkg -l | grep samba
ii libsamba-credentials0:i386 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba Credentials management library
ii libsamba-hostconfig0:i386 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba host configuration library
ii libsamba-policy0:i386 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba policy management
ii libsamba-util0:i386 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba utility function library
ii python-samba 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Python bindings for Samba
rc samba 2:3.6.6-3 i386 SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
ii samba-common 2:3.6.10-1 all common files used by both the Samba server and client
ii samba-common-bin 2:3.6.10-1 i386 common files used by both the Samba server and client
ii samba-dsdb-modules 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba Directory Services Database
ii samba4 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 SMB/CIFS file, NT domain and active directory server (version 4)
ii samba4-clients 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 client utilities from Samba 4
ii samba4-common-bin 4.0.0+dfsg1-1 i386 Samba 4 common files used by both the server and the client
I created an administrative account called "admin-domain" which is member of the following groups:
- Domain Admins
- Domain Users
- Group Policy Creator Owners
If I logon with the "administrator" account, then there is no problem to create a new GPO with the group policy management application from the windows 8 client.
However, if I logon with the "admin-domain" account, is is not possible to create a GPO. The error given is "Access Denied"
I checked and there is no problem for "admin-domain" to write in the sysvol share.
For me being member of Domain Admins and writing to sysvol rights shall be enough to write a GPO.
Apart from that, the GPO are correctly applied and I see no other issue.
I am sure missing something, but I can't figure out what...
Thanks for your help.
