I want to set samba to act as domain controller PDC.Is it possible to create user profil in samba with rights to change network settings but not install software, create users.Something like network admin that is like normal user but he is able change network settings.
At work, using SambaKerberos and ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I joined my machine to our ADS network. Again using ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I modified both common-account and common-auth with these settings.
I want to use samba in ubuntu.For samba users i make a user in my linux box like
# useradd smith # useradd jone
These users can also login into my ubuntu system if they want. For samba I want to know that, is there any way to create separate valid list of samba users so that they may access files from windows xp.
I have a Samba server and it works except other users can't connect to it. The admin account can connect to the share fine but when I add other users they can't connect.These are the commands I used to make and add users
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.
I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.
For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.
I have Ubuntu server 10.04 joined to a domain using Likewise Open. I can login using my domain credentials and have added my domain account to the sudoers file. Now that I've got it joined to the domain I want to add some samba shares and have domain members use their accounts to access them. However, no matter what combination of my domain name and the domain user or group I use in the valid users field it won't let me in. What's the proper way of inputting a domain user or group in the valid user field?
This is the entry I'm using for the share:
Code: [testshare] path = /srv/testshare valid users = @"Domain Name+Domain Group" (Have tried many things here) public = no writable = yes printable = no create mask = 0765
I wrote a little script that will automatically mount two Samba shares to my home directory and I was wondering if a) You guys/gals had any input as to how I could improve on this script and b) Tell me how I would go about having this script automatically execute when I log on via SSH.
#!/bin/sh mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data1 /home/user/Data1 mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data2 /home/user/Data2
I setup openldap and samba on 9.10. The ubuntu desktop client gets authenticated successfully with the server. But when I do a passwd on the client, only the ldap passwd is getting changed but not in the samba and the unix user account.
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://192.168.3.100 ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=local ldap user suffix = ou=People ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
But only the ldap password is getting changed and not in the samba and unix user account.
Need help maintaining permissions across multiple directories. Have Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. O/S installed, updated and running with no problems.Why is it that my administrator user id doesn't seem to have root permissions to create directories? I am trying to setup hosting 3 separate websites and therefore create 3 separate directories to manage all associated files for the 3 websites. Also, I am attempting to read through the tutorials located at:URL...
I have a network set up that has been working for around a year with no problems but has now developed a login problem. The system was set up with a main server with all users on it and another PC located elsewhere that people could log onto using there personal login and password that then gained access to the account on the main server. This remote PC has now got the problem. When you try to log onto an account it comes up with the message "your session has lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself this could mean there is a installation problem or that you are out of disk space."
Error message says that no profile for the user can be found and it couldnt create per-user gnome configuration directory. I can log on as root onto the remote PC as it is obviously a local account but all the account on the main server are not accessible. From the root account I can see that the connection to the server is OK and I can actually log into the accounts on the server using the failsafe session so the physical network is OK.
I never built or designed this set up and to be honest I normally work with windows so its all a bit strange to me. Both PC's run Centos 5. I have checked the messages log and there doesnt seem to be any indication of a problem. Just that it stopped connecting from the remote PC. The accounts are all active on the main server itself and have no problems being accessed.
I am just started to setting up a samba PDC at our office.MY problem is my xp client is logging in to server but not loading the profile.its booting with tmp profile and whatever the changes I do in that profile.its not updating that in the server. And my client.log file is showing following error. '/home/user4' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [user4] Error was Permission denied. I gave full right to /home/user4.But still its giving this error. User4 is given same password for linux and samba. How can I add a profile of user to smb pdc?
On a fedora 10 server i have installed a samba server.When i log in from Mac OS X as user 'jody' with my password for the server,i get access to the directories on the server.But when user 'ani' logs in with her password for the server,the connection is refused.Both users can log in directly at the server.For user 'jody' the entries in the samba log are:
I configured a server with vsftpd, and what I want to do is force local users to use SSL (which I have done), and allow anonymous users on the "ftp" username to access the server with only a password and no SSL. Here is my configuration file:
Code: # Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf # # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable. # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.
Currently working on the targeted policy, I need a help in doing the following things as quick as possible:
1- How to create a totally new SELinux user (not mapping new linux user to SELinux user) I want a new user with no roles or with a maximum of 1 role. I also need how to compile the new user so I can used it for mapping users. At the time, I've tried creating a new file inside /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/users similar to the other users inside this directory, but it did not actually seem to appear when using the command semanage to list SELinux users : semanage user -l 2- How to create a totally new SELinux role (empty for now) ? and how to make the relation between this new role and domains or types. 3- How to create new domain, actually following some old instructions I created the .fc and .te files, but not the .if file, which is more complicated than the other 2 file.
I installed mysql on FC14, but can't successfully create a new user. It lets me go through all the steps without complaint, but then I can't log into mysql as the new user.
Here's what I did.
1) yum install mysql mysql-server 2) service mysqld start ##sets up mysql 3) mysqladmin -u root password myownsecrectpass ##create a root password 3b) mysql -uroot -p; #log in as root, this works fine 4) CREATE DATABASE webdb; 5) CREATE USER 'anewuser'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password123'; ##create anewuser with a passwd 6) GRANT ALL ON webdb.* TO anewuser@'%'; 7) FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Then I log out of mysql as root and try to log in like this mysql -uanewuser -p
I enter the password and get this error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
Take a physical user FRED. FRED is a linux user ( known by linux on his laptop ) FRED is a Samba user ( Known by samba on the samba pdc server ) When he logs locally (with username/password) on its standalone laptop (with no network), he is known as FRED:user. He access his data in /home/FRED/. When he logs through samba (with username/password) on the domain MY_DOM, he is known as MY_DOMFRED:MY_DOMdomain user. He access his data in /home/MY_DOM/FRED/. ) Is it possible that the human FRED has only one repository and have full access to its repository regardless of how it was connected. If yes, how to do it
2) If not, Is it possible that the human FRED has full access to /home/FRED/.............. and /home/MY_DOM/FRED/.
Automatic upgrade ver 10 to 11 Have a large drive that is shared over Windows domain.This was renamed from /media/drive/ to /media/7534179143A7E34 All the users in Windows domain can not access the files or folders on the Fedora server - Samba setup. Why was the deive renamed and is this causing problems. I reshared the folders on the drive but still cannot access the drive. Where do I start to fault find please.
I have a 80GB HDD on which I have installed Ubuntu10.04. I have about 45GB space remaining. I am trying to install Fedora13. I create : 2GB / partition - 2.4GB swap partition. I want to create 6GB /usr partition and it says not enough disk space? Why is it giving that message?
I'm having some troubles with my samba shares on a fresh install of Fedora 10 x86_64 on my laptop. The laptop has only the KDE Desktop environment. I'm trying to share between this computer and my homebrew server via a wrt54g linksys router running DD-WRT firmware. The server is running Fedora 9 i386.
The shares on the server can be read by the laptop, and I have been consistently able to mount the server shares on the laptop using mount.cifs, but only when the firewall on the server is down. Shares are only visible between the machines when the firewall is down on the machine containing the share. I set up the shares using the system-config-samba tool, and the firewalls are both set to allow samba server and samba client. I can typically see the laptop from the server, but not the shares, and only when the laptop firewall is disabled. I can access the Laptop shares from the laptop. When trying to mount the laptop shares on the server, a warning message stating that the mount failed appears. Shares show up as correct in both the system-config-samba tool, and the KDE sharing tools. The share shows a "shared" icon in the dolphin browser.
From all that I know, the shares should work perfectly. I've searched the web, perused the man pages and how-to's, and combed through the forums, and everything I've found tells me that the shares should be working. Since they are not working, it leads me to believe that I must have made a mistake someone and not noticed it.
