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
# from UNKNOWN ()
# Date: 2010/08/22 16:34:42
[global]
workgroup = ROSHNI.LOCAL

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.

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.

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?

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.

Debian Configuration :: Roaming Wifi Without Managing App

Aug 23, 2010

I have finally weaned my laptop from network manager by setting up my /etc/network/interfaces file. # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Wireless Setup auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wireless-essid linksysn

wireless automatically connects to my home wireless network (linksysn). But suppose I wanted to take this laptop to the coffee house where they have free wifi. I am assuming that my wireless will not automatically connect to any other wifi hotspot except linksysn. So how do i set it up to roam like NM did?

Debian Configuration :: Reboot Both The Server And The Client Machines Every Time Change The SAMBA Configuration?

Apr 5, 2010

I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.

My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.

Slackware :: WLAN Roaming Configuration - Connect To Hot Spots

Sep 2, 2010

I'd like to go one step further now, with my laptop. As I'll be travelling more often in the foreseeable future, I'd like to be able to connect to WLAN hot spots in hotels, railway stations and air ports with a minimum of hassle. What's the best way to go about it?

Of course, Wicd is quite useful, but I'd prefer a KDE application, and I'd like to be able to define "profiles" for various scenarios. Certainly I am not the first Slackware user with this requiremnent, and probably there are tons or docs regarding this topic. However, searching LQ and the internet I haven't found what I am looking for.

Ubuntu :: Samba Roaming Profile Network "/home" Folder

Mar 3, 2010

I'm trying to setup a Ubuntu workstation in a corporate environment, right now just as a proof of concept but hopefully soon I will do the real thing. The problem is trying to establish a Linux equivalent of a roaming profile. The user logs into the Ubuntu Machine using their Windows Active Directory Credentials. (A big victory) Then I would like the client to mount their /home folder off of a Windows 2008 Small Business Server. So far I can make Ubuntu mount everyone's /home folders but I would like to narrow it down to only mount the specific user who has logged in and with proper permissions.

Mount the proper /home folder from the server with that users permissions so they are the owner, have full access etc. Only Mount the current users folder. Or any logged on etc. (I just don't want to mount every folder for every user that exists in Active Directory) Do it automagically.

I login as "dirtandgas est" (dirtandgas is our test domain) and here is the line from the FSTAB that's used to mount the directory.

Code:
//server/redirectedfolders /home/DIRTANDGAS cifs credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode0777,dir_mode0777,rw,uid=892863608 0 0
Now I know if I changed that to the following, it would only mount the one directory, but I don't want to have to maintain the FSTAB on each computer for each user. (the point of using active directory)

[Code]....

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Use RSAT With Samba PDC

May 1, 2016

I had set up as a NT4 style PDC. There is no longer any PDC/BDC dynamic with Samba4 and MS AD support.

I purged samba packages and winbind et al and provisioned the domain correctly, and everything works well now.

What follows is the original post.

==========================================================================================
After much struggling with DNS settings, I finally got a basic samba AD controller up and running, and then that's about as far as I got.

As soon as I tried to use the RSAT I found that I could not connect RSAT to the AD server while logged in as root.

The error I get is:

Naming information cannot be located because: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Contact your system adminsiotrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Add The Subtitle File

Aug 1, 2011

I'm using Xfce 4.8, which now provides built-in samba browing in thunar. This works like a charm. I can browse a samba share (external HD connecter to router via USB). Yet it appears to me now that the support is limited to thunar. I mean double clicking on a file allows me to open/edit that file if and only if the software itself has samba support. In practice, double-clicking on a movie opens it with vlc thanks to vlc's own smb support. Even then, I can't find a way to add the subtitle file. I reckon that to use the share transparently, I would need to mount it the "mount" way. Either on a mount point like /mnt/hard_drive or something like .gvfs/hard_drive.

Is my understanding correct ? Is that my only option? Considering the disk won't be switched on at startup, fstab is not the solution. Would gigolo be the right choice? I spent some time trying gigolo a few days ago, following an easy tuto found on the web and it didn't work as expected. If needed I could give it another try.

When I try to execute:

I get a failure.

When I check syslog I get:

somwhere in the log it would say.

Debian Configuration :: Pxe Setup On Lenny

Feb 27, 2010

i am trying to get a pxe server working on a debian so other clients can boot off it. the problem has two parts.

1. getting the pxe working. so far the tftp part doesnt work. the client says tftp error. so i guess the dhcp portion is working, but theres something wrong with the /var/lib/tftpboot or the deamon config itself.
2. the other issue is that in the shop many system's have non-working disk drives. also many of them do not have a usb boot option in the bios. all i need to do is get the "bare" kernel file or grub(?) to boot over pxe and give me the ability to boot from a usb flash drive and load the rest of the linux files from there. my primary intention is NOT netinstall. although it wouldnt hurt. my intention is running a linux live usb on systems without bios usb boot support. ive read somewhere that a full pxe live boot requires nfs setup. i am asking for that, just so i can boot from a flash drive.
