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.
I have configured samba pdc and i have some windows machine which i want to add in that pdc, i have create a user and set smbpasswd for that user but when i try to connect windows machine and it asks for user name and password it don't accept it and it says access is denied.
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'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.
