I have correctly installed Samba 4 on my Centos 6 server. Windows pcs join correctly the domain and users have their roaming profiles working good. In our office we also have some Linux workstations with Fedora 18 joined to the Samba 4 AD Domain.
It was time to upgrade our group server (new HDs, problems with old installation of DRBD, etc..).
Going as usually for CentOS i upgraded whole system from 6.3 to 6.4 The later one came with samba 3.6 as the old one was 3.5. I transferred most of users by copying /etc/password, /etc/shadow and samba accounts with pdbedit. Homes were on nfs-drive.
We have a Windows Server 2008 r2 Standard and a server that everybody logs into using RDP which runs Windows Server 2003. Now when people log into the RDP server, they only use an MS-Access frontend as their shell, explorer doesn't even run. However...it appears that all of their roaming profiles are needlessly being copied over to the RDP server when they log in.
I have also here a Sol-10 with samba configured all is working out but just want to know if i set a password server pointing to a windows domain with Active Directory... do i still have to create a samba user on my Sol-10 or all username/pass authentication will be done on the windows domain?
I am setting up a samba server at work to be a fileserver for our windows network. It's all very basic, we have a mix of laptops and desktops running mainly windows 7 and a few Vista. Some connect wirelessly to the router, and the desktop and Ubuntu Server are on Cat 5.
I installed Ubuntu server yesterday and installed it with samba.
I set up a Samba server on CentOS 6.4 and everything is working. However, I need to go into the network tab and type //192.168.x.x in order to connect to it, it doesn't show up automatically in my network tab like other PCs do, why is this?
Optional question that isnt as important, how would I get a printer to show up?
I'm replacing an older OpenSuse server with a new Centos6.4 server.
So far that goes ok, except that the OpenSuse server is also a samba
server with ldap connection.
Since I replaced all but 2 machines in the building from Windows to
Linux, I was hoping not to install Samba on the new server. ( And also
because I can't get it to work on Centos.
