Server :: Roaming Profiles Not Working On For Opensuse 11.3 Samba Domain On Xp Clients?

Aug 26, 2010

On all of my xp clients no matter what the username is is I am continously getting the error saying that the profile cannot be found. I just built this domain recently and since day 1 the roaming profiles have not worked.

here is my smb.conf:

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Get The Roaming Profiles Working

Sep 17, 2010

I've been at this for hours now and am still not getting it to work. I recently installed Squeeze on my home server, overwriting a Lenny installation. I've been able to add my NT domain accounts back in and pdbedit shows the expeted values - e.g.:

root@whenim64:/home/samba/profiles# pdbedit -Lv garydale
Unix username: garydale
NT username:
Account Flags: [U ]
User SID: S-1-5-21-832165970-4128531365-4003982369-1002
Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-832165970-4128531365-4003982369-513
Full Name: Gary Dale
[Code].....

However, although I can log on, I can't get the roaming profiles working. I get the "windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile" message. Since my Unix account names/numbers are the same and the profiles are in the previously working /home folder that didn't get touched, I can't see how it''s a permissions problem. Noneheless, I removed an old profile which should have let WIndows create a new one. It didn't. I still got the same error. I did have to reinstate the groupmaps (don't know why the samba install doesn't do this) but they seem OK.

Server :: Samba PDC Without Roaming Profiles - Vista Login Doesn't Run Script

Jun 23, 2009

Im trying to set up a samba PDC and login to it from Vista, and everything is fine except that the login script is not getting run at all. I dont want roaming profiles, I just want a script to map the samba users drive and a couple of other network shares. Pasting smb.conf at end of post. The logon script is in the netlogon directory and Im pretty sure all the permissions are ok. /home/samba/netlogon/logon.cmd This is a windows file.Vista logs in ok as the domain user, just no script!

Debian Configuration :: Setup Roaming Profiles On Our Samba PDC?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm trying to setup roaming profiles on our Samba PDC. I've been at it all day, running into a lot of issues with access denied, and going around changing permissions hoping to fix it

The problem seems to have evolved over the day, getting worse. Right now it's an error message on logging in: Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile.....

DETAIL- The network name cannot be found. In addition, the user does not have access to any shares by default.

The server can be accessed manually and the user can connect to shares. The server can be pinged by the client. The client's user profiles do not get stored or retrieved on logout/in

current smb.conf
# Samba config file created using SWAT

Ubuntu Servers :: Configure Samba With Roaming Profiles

May 27, 2010

I want to create an extra Ubuntu Server for storing roaming profiles,

I got: One Win2k8 server as Domain controller. One Ubuntu 9.10 server who is a member of the domain using Samba. Winbind is working correctly.. I can at least connect to shares with user names of the AD. Anyway my client (WinXP) currently logs on to the AD and works from there. I want to configure it so that all accounts are going to use roaming profiles, but here it comes... I want to store the roaming profiles on the extra Ubuntu server.

Fedora :: 11 - Xp Roaming Profiles With Samba Pdc No Longer Works After Upgrade

Jun 17, 2009

I was successfully using samba + fedora directory server in fedora 10 as a primary domain controller for my home network (achieved mostly by following barry905's instructions here: [url].

After upgrading to fedora 11, some of the pdc functionality no longer worked.

For example, when i ran 'pdbedit -Lv', i got:

Code:

I was able to fix this by adding to the [global] section in /etc/samba/smb.conf:

Code:

I also found that i could no longer join an xp computer to the domain. i discovered that for some reason, the samba administrator password had been cleared. after running:

Code:

That was fixed.

The last problem, which i have still not fixed, is that roaming profiles no longer work. when i try to do a domain login as user 'htpc' from an xp machine, i get the following message in xp:

Code:

Here's an excerpt of my /etc/samba/smb.conf:

General :: Hosting Windows Roaming Profiles On A Samba Share?

Sep 10, 2010

Everything works fine in doing this, however every time a user logs into the Windows Citrix Session the roaming profile created on the linux samba share creates their Windows Profile with a 755 perms. I understand that the default umask is (globally on my RHEL host is 022 ??) but in my smb.conf file the definition that is defined for the directory is set to a create mask of 0700. What is going on?

However the raoming profiles were not working so I removed the roaming profile part of the samba and the openldap using ldap account manager. I also rejoined a couple of the computers back to the domain successfully (it was not an instaneous join, it took a good minute or 2 to join each pc). Now I cannot cannot login to any of these computers with the domain credentials. I can share using the UNC path no problem and this was working find about 1 week ago.

On 1 of the computers Iw as able to finally get a log file saying this:

Server :: Active Directory Roaming Profiles On Ubuntu External HDD?

Nov 4, 2009

I have a Ubuntu 9.10 desktop, with an external HD shared via Samba, with some users and folders on it. I have another computer on the network running Winblows Server 03', handling Active Directory (that I am still setting up and testing before any serious implementation.) I've been testing GPOs I am building on an XP SP3 virtual machine that is running off my Ubuntu desktop as well, that I joined to the AD domain.

However, the Domain Controller doesn't have a very big hard drive, and I'd like to take advantage of having 930GB free on this external hard drive for roaming user profiles, especially since I backup all of the drive contents every week. This would simplify a lot for me. What would you recommend is the best way to go about setting this up with my Samba configuration? I have a feeling /media/Slave/UserProfiles permissions will get somewhat complex.

General :: New Windows Xp Clients Can't Join Samba Domain / Fix It?

Aug 18, 2010

We've been running samba on linux for a while and everything was fine. All of a sudden when you add new clients to the domain you get the error message :Logon Failure:unknown user name or bad password. This to me seems like a windows error message and not a samba error. When you remove an existing machine (ie on domain) and then try to rejoin it to the domain you fail.

Software :: Configuring Samba Users To Join Clients To The Domain?

Feb 3, 2011

Im currently using an english book to setup my samba server, and im having problems understanding it.

I dont want to use root to join clients to the domain; i prefer creating a plain user.

Ok, so, the steps i follow are:

net groupmap add unixgroup=srvadmins ntgroup="Server Admins"
net groupmap add ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=dmnadmins rid=512 type=d
net rpc rights grant 'ORAServer Admins' seMachineAccountPrivilege

This way, i have a group called srvadmins with permissions to join clients, a group called dmnadmins with permissions to manage users and other permissions, and root.

Now, users: "root", "dmnadmin"(from dmnadmins group) and "srvadmin" (from srvadmins group) can add machines to domain. Root because is root, srvadmin because i granted permissions, and dmnadmin because is admin

So i wonder, why srvadmins group is needed to be granted privileges?

I tryed to lower dmnadmins privileges by revoking semachineaccountprivilege privilege, but didnt worked

net rpc rights revoke 'ORADomain Admins' seMachineAccountPrivilege

looks like its privileges comes from another group and it user managed to add a machine to the domain correctly.

Ok, so, is this really usefull? why do i need 3 kind of users to be able to join to the domain?

Ubuntu :: Roaming Profiles - Login More Than One Computer At The Same Time?

Jul 7, 2010

I've been thinking about setting up roaming profiles so that I can access my profile and settings from any computer in the house that has ubuntu booting on it. One thing that concerns me is, what happens if I log in using my profile from more than one computer at the same time? A couple examples:

1. I'm working on something on one pc, and go downstairs. A little while later I fire up a laptop down there and want to browse the web. What would happen?

2. I am logged in to my desktop, but let it go to standby. I later log on to a different pc on the network and load the same profile that was logged in (but in standby). What happens to the state of the profile when the desktop wakes up again?

Ubuntu Servers :: Create Samba File Share To Windows Domain Clients?

Apr 28, 2010

I feel ashamed for even asking this, since it seems like there's about 3 samba questions here every day. However after an hour of searching, I keep finding strange variants that aren't what I need.

My Goal: Create a single file share on an Ubuntu Server - share it via samba to Windows clients that are on a domain with active directory. It sure would be nice if AD authentication would work - so users don't have to type in a linux user/passsword each time they want to access the share.

In my adventures, I've found the following items (which may overlap)

1. Joining the server to a Windows Domain

2. Turning the server into a Windows Domain Controller

3. Authentication with LDAP (still not quite sure how/what this would do)

4. Stuff with Kerberos

5. Lots of people bickering about Samba 3/4 & how it's impossible to make Samba a PDC.

I'm not sure if I need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller or not...all I want to do is create a file share and share it on the domain...I don't need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller for that, right? Maybe just a member? Maybe nothing at all?

I guess if I want to authenticate stuff correctly (or forward authentication requests? Not sure), I probably need to join the ubuntu server to the domain...I think.

But let's say I do join it to the domain...then how to I create a file share that is authenticated via active directory rather than a local ubuntu server account? I see a dozen guides on joining the server to the domain, but nobody ever mentions sharing the folder over the domain.

The lines are also blurred between joining Ubuntu to the domain and making it a domain controller. What should I keep an eye out to avoid in these tutorials?

I get lost between the Kerberos/LDAP/Samba/WinBind etc...and I have a feeling I don't need all of these for something this simple.

OpenSUSE Network :: Transfer Speed Between Samba Server And Win Clients

Mar 12, 2010

I have the problems with transfer speed between samba and Windows XP clients.

Samba server configuration:
Quad Core 6600 CPU.
4 Gb RAM
OpenSUSE 11.2 with kernel "2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop"
Samba - samba-3.5.1-1.1.i586
Test: 4 GB File copying. One file.

Transfer speed from Samba Server to Windows 7 and XP clients:
(Windows clients copy file from Server share -> to local drive)
From Server to Windows 7 client 1:
85-90 Mb/sec
From Server to Windows 7 client 2:
90-100 Mb/sec
From Server to XP1 client 3
75-100 Mb/sec

Transfer speed from Windows 7 and XP clients TO Samba Server:
(client copy file from local drive -> to server Share)
From Server to Windows 7 client 1:
12-20 Mb/sec
From Server to Windows 7 client 2:
30-35 Mb/sec
From Server to Windows XP client 1
20-27 Mb/sec

(Copying file from Windows local drive to Windows remote share)
From Window 7 client 1 TO Windows XP client 1
40-50 Mb/sec
From Window 7 client 2 TO Windows XP client 1
50-60 Mb/sec

Copying file from Windows 7 client 2 share -> TO Windows XP client 1 show me 100-120 Mb/sec speed permanent.
Copying file from Linux hosts to NFS server is stable 50-90
Mb/sec bidirectional.

This part of my smb.conf file
Code:
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
# samba-doc package is installed.
# Date: 2009-10-27
[global]
log level = 1
debug level = 0
max log size = 50 .....

I have very slow write speed when copying file from Windows clients to Samba Share. Samba speed is slower than Windows native clients connections ?

Server :: Sync Local Profiles With Samba?

Server :: Connecting To A Samba (not On Domain) From Windows Domain Pc?

Jun 27, 2011

i need to allow window domain controller user to use file share of linux.windows DC user can see the share file and directories of linux file server but not able to access.

below is brief--

I have a Linux machine which is on my network but not on my domain. I have configured SAMBA FILESERVER for file sharing purpose. I have a Windows XP PC which is on the domain(windows server) that I am trying to connect to a share on the Linux box. I supply my credentials but regardless of which login I use I always get Logon Failure. I have created an account on the Linux machine with the same user name and password as my domain account but so far no luck. Can I connect from a domain PC to a non-domain Linux box? Is there something else I should be checking?

When I explicitly declare "path" param, it works ok. But I need PERSONAL home dir for every user separately, not one dir for everyone.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ltsp Server Subnet - Log Clients To The Parent Domain?

Mar 10, 2011

I have an Edubuntu server with two nics joined to the primary windows domain and I can log on with domain credentials and everything is AOK. I used LikewiseOpen 6 to join the server to the primary domain. So, on my Edubuntu server eth1 is connected to the primary domain and has a static IP. eth2 also has a static IP and is the DHCP for the thin client subnet, connected to a switch. IP forwarding is enabled.

DOMAIN - eth1 - Edubuntu Server - eth2 (SUBNET) - switch - clients

So far, so good: I can log on the thin clients with one of the local accounts specified on the Edubuntu server and with that account I can surf the net and, if I supply domain credentials, browse the primary domain. Problem I have is:

I can't work out how to log on to the primary domain with a Active Directory account directly from a thin client. If I try DOMAINuser to log on, after giving the password, the password screen refreshes and 'domainuser@11.*.21.*'s password' appears under the blank password box. The IP in that message is the IP for the subnet and not the primary domain. I feel like I'm miss-understanding some basic simple step but I just can't figure it out.
