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?
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.
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.
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.
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!
[global] ; General server settings netbios name = TILVERTON server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
I'd like to set up a Ubuntu server with windows clients running roaming profiles. I know this is possible but do not know how to set it up. Does anyone know of a guide or anything that can explain this?
i m working on roaming profile where linux is the server & windows is the client... i m implementing it using samba as pdc my linux version is 188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64 but my samba server is not working windows is not authenticating my domain name following is the copy of my smb.conf file
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too # many!) most of which are not shown in this example
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?
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.
I am setting up samba on my CentOS server for the first time. I am using webmin to configure samba. Here is the smb.conf
[global] netbios name = KISKA cups options = raw load printers = yes server string =
I can see the domain name "KISKA" in the "network" tab of windows explorer, however when I click on it I get this error: Windows cannot access \KISKA check the spelling of the name. otherwise there might be a problem with your network. Under the details of this error I get this: "The network path was not found" Also I have stopped iptables so it cant be firewalled
want to made 2 users in samba by which windows machine we access share, say user1 has read,execute permission, user2 has read write delete update full permission. we have done user1 configuration as premia user. we need your guideline for user2
we change the smb.conf file # less /etc/samba/smb.conf [global]
I have set up RHEL 5 file server with Winbind and samba services running.I am able to assign and authenticate windows XP users against my RHEL 5 server.No issues.But one or two of my users are using Windows 7 Ultimate edition and they are not able to access my network samba shares.I can view the shares in windows 7 box but trying to access gives me "network access denied error".But i can access the same share in Windows xp machine for the above tested users.Working great but not in windows 7 box.I haven't tested with Vista OS yet.
I would like to share a folder from a Linux Guest with a Windows host (with read and write access if possible) in VirtualBox. I read in these two links: here and here that it's possible to do this using Samba, but I am a little bit lost and need more information on how to proceed.
So far, I managed to set up two network adapters (one NAT and one host-only) and to install Samba on the Linux guest, but I have the following questions now: What do I need to type in samba.conf to share a folder from the Linux guest? (the tutorial provided in one of the links above only explains how to share home directories) Are there any Samba commands that I need to run on the guest to enable sharing? How do I make sure that these folders are only available to the host OS and not on the Internet? Once the Linux guest is setup, how do I access each of the individual shared folders from the Windows host? I read that I need to mount a drive on Windows to do this, but do I use Samba logins, or Linux logins, also do I use localhost? or do I need to set up an IP for this?
On Windows 7, I have VirtualBox running Linux (Ubuntu 8.04), with Samba set up so that the Windows host can access it. But if the virtual machine is shut down & restored, or rebooted, the Windows Network no longer shows it. I've tried refreshing many times, restarting Samba, disabling/enabling the virtual network adapter, and running the succession of commands ipconfig /release, ipconfig /flushdns, & ipconfig /renew, but none worked. As a last resort I could restart the host itself, but is there a better way?
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
In the Windows network, there are 2 or more shares as follows:
I can access both shares in nautilus e.g. "smb://bla.bla.company.com/share $". The shares are mounted then in "home/user/.gvfs/". ok.
In one of shares, is a file-based repo, which I can access easily with svn.
Unfortunately when I try to checkout any normal folder from a share (as in MS$ with Tortoise), I fail...
What's more in the file-based repo, external references exist to other shares in the network, the name is as "file:///X:/folder/file.txt". SVN gives error messages about such references and does not access files (where "X:/" is also mounted, but as a "test$ to smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" in "home/user/.gvfs/ ").
My questions: - what is the best solution to mount shares, so I can access all the SVN repos? - How can I access normal files and folders from a share with svn? - How can the problem with external file references in a file-based SVN repo can be solved? without to checkout/commit files "manually"... - Some checkouted scripts (Perl, etc.) use libs from shares: "Use lib qw(r:/tools/perl/lib/). how to get around this as well? - How can I change mount-names: "test$ on smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" to something like "share-test$? - How can I change the mount location? in "home/user/SAMBA/" instead of "/home/user/.gvfs/"..
I had tried to use "fuse-smb": installed, created config, but when I run "fusesmb /home/user/SHARES/", i get an error message: smb.conf is missing.. Where can I get this config?
And one last question: Can someone recommend me a svn-gui? i have tried tried rabbitcvs, esvn and some others .. but all either do not work or crash.
I'm not sure, but maybe I can use svn and tortoise in wine, and checkout/commit the necessary files from/to "home/user/project/"? there raises the questions whether it is possible to install tortoise in wine and how to mount the shares on the wine? How to manage the hard-coded lib-names in some scripts...
I have an Ubuntu server with some shares and a Windows XP client in an active directory, i've created all the right accounts but can't seem to connect my linux box from the XP machine wouldn't the user name box popping up with ACTIVEDIRETORYNAMEusername like that? hope that makes sense, the account to access the share is locally created on the linux box?
I had a connection to my other Windows computer the other day automatically in the Places-->Network-->Windows Network folder but it now seems to have disappeared. I tried going to Place connect to server and typing in the WIndows computer name but it won;t connect and errors out. I also tried the IP: Cannot display location "smb://%5C%5C192.168.1.36/"
i hav configured samba share in RHEL 5.4 , it can be accessable from other linux machine but i want to access it from windows machine, how can i do it? i also want want to know that in RHEL my partitions are in ext3 format, so how can windows can detect this partition, Is samba share is independent of filesystem on either machines
case2:--- i hav configured samba on windows server 2008 , how can i mount it on linux machine
running a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop in the living room with a LOT of files. I've tried all week to get this working, and can't tell where the problem is. I want to make a music share that will: Allow guests, but as read-only Allow me to mount in Windows 7 with the user 'thecheeks' Give user thecheeks read/write access to that share
I swear Samba ends up working but maybe the problem is with Windows 7. I looked at the SAMBAWiki Win 7 page and made sure my registry values were what they should have been (and they were).
I'm able to connect to a networked Windows machine and its shares using the Places -> Network -> Windows network interface, but unable to do so using smbclient at terminal command line. I can see the shares using:
smbclient -L //server -U username
But when issuing the command:
smbclient //server/service -U username
domain=[server] OS=[Windows Server 2003 R2 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2] tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
The share name has spaces, like
lab raid root share
I use 40 to fill in the spaces. This problem must be something fairly simple if I can connect via the Places GUI but not through the command line.
I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.
Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:
[Windows 2000 and higher] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :
%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
ubuntu 9.04 and win xppro i've been pounding my head aganst this for hours now. reading anything i can find samba works mostly shares created from nautilus work fine from both ubuntu and windows if i check to allow guest access if not i can not log in it does work in the nautilus browser fine. shouldn't make a difference but am using a virtualbox win xp guest shares work without issue. printers work here is a dump of my service defenitions
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) map to guest = Bad User
