I'm working for a smallish non-profit that has gone through some recent growing pains. We have two sites that are currently without a domain controller, and no money for MS licenses, so I was thinking of trying to add a couple of additional Linux machines (we already run Linux for web services internally, and I've set up a test case previously to see if I could get a server to join the domain, which was a success) and was trying to find out if I can get them to act as Domain Controllers without replacing the domain. The main issue that I'm having at those locations is drive mappings are not happening correctly against our DFS file servers. The one other location that had this issue had it go away when we added a local DC. The domain is a Server 2008 domain.
i am trying to recover some files on a partition through the ubuntu live cd (they are hidden files and i can't find anything else that would work) and it said i needed root privaleges in order to copy them. is this possible and how do i do it
In the office there is a local network with samba+openldap PDC. The local domain name is company.net. The company desided to create a corporate Website on a remote hosting and desided that the site's domain should be company.net which is same as local network's domain name. So now it is not possible to reach that corporate website from within the company's local network because, as I guess, bind9 which is installed on above menioned PDC looks for company.net on a local webserver. Is there a possibility to let people from this local network browse the remote site?
i need to configure Redhat Linux as Domain Controller in my organisation, whee all of my clients PC's will be Windows XP or Windows 7 ( where i can login through Domain users ). what exactly i need to configure in Redhat Linux, i heard Configuring Samba as PDC is quite enough ? is that right ? then what is Open LDAP ? should i need to Configure Open LDAP also ?
I want to host 5 websites on my new virtual server so I have created 2 nameservers that point to my virtual server's IP addresses as a glue record. What confuses me is when I create a new domain on my server it gives the new domain it's own nameservers (ns1.thenewdomain.co.uk etc) do I need to change these records so they use the nameservers I created earlier? If I do? Which particular records should I change? I'm running a Unix virtual server with a Plesk control panel.
I have up to 300 PC in Ministry of Higher Education, I want to use UBUNUT server and UBUNUT Desktop for my network, But I am really not so familiar with UBUNUT Server just a little bit, finally here is my questions: Can I do these roles 1- Domain Controller. 2- User Accounts. 3- File Sharing. 4- Web Server. 5- Print Server. 6- Internet Sharing. 7- Web Chaching. 8- web proxy. 9- Firewall.
We have Ubuntu 8.0.4. We'd like to give this one user the ability to reboot the server but no other root privileges. I'm assuming this can be done using sudo. What file and what change do I need to make to it?
Can Debian act as a Windows Domain Controller? I'm just curious because my boss recently tossed out some old servers and I grabbed them. They're good machines but I can't afford to pay $1000 for Server 2003 R2 just to setup a domain at my place and run Endpoint Protection and such. I've never used a domain setup in Linux before so I thought I'd ask and possibly try to, if Debian/Linux is capable of such a thing.
it always frozen my ssh login window when the DC crashes. when the DC crashes, the putty won't give me the password prompt and will go inactive directly after a while no matter what username(local or domain users) I give
is it possible to avoid to check domain users before it gives me the password prompt? or, we can make it to check if the user is a local user first?
i have configured samba as file server in fedora 11,it works fine for both windows and linux machines .but i want to configure ldap and samba as domain controller. Googled a lot on internet every thing is confusing me .
My Windows 2003 domain has three domain controllers. All of them are configured as global catalog servers, but my krb.conf and krb5.conf only contain a reference to one of them. What if the DC referenced is down? Should my files reference the other DCs? The contents of my files follow...
I have setup Ubuntu servers as LAMP machines but that's pretty much it.
I need to work on an existing CentOS server that I will see for the first time tomorrow. I am told that, as of right now, it is "just serving the internet." The goal is to set it up to be a primary domain controller by which I mean:
1) A user should be able to login to the server from any of the workstations and then see their server stored documents
2) The clients will be a mixed bag of Linux, Windows and Mac machines
I could use a push in the right direction as to what I need to do to get this all setup. I know how to setup users and home folders (I use webmin typically and I understand that there is a version for CentOS) but clearly there is more that I need to do. I am really curious as to how I would map the necessary drives on the client machines upon login and have the users have automatic access to their data regardless of the client machine they log in to.
I have the following problem: I can't authorize with my central WinNT 4.0 domain controller. I set up all parameters in YaST, but still can't see any shares or get inet access.I am using gnome and it shows several windows workgroups. While I am trying to open it, gnome shows a window to request my login credentials. I am setting up all thing right and then it shows it again. I tried smbclient utility to login, but still can't login.What can I do about it?Also I have some problems with my http proxy: suse doesn't sent it my login/password while I can easily work with proxy, that doesn't request it
We have a LAN with mixed Windows workstations win 2000, winxp, vista, win 7, linux servers all in a workgroup. Most applications used on the LAN are windows based, with a growing number of python apps. A friend suggested a Primary Domain Controller would be a better way to manage logins, resources etc. I don't wont to use a Windows based PDC, what would you suggest as a linux based PDC? I have heard about TURNKEY PDC, but it uses Samba 3 and apparently doesn't handle Active Directory in Windows.
I had tried to build up my linux box as Domain Controller and DNS for serving clients of windows xp. But it didn't succeded. Its always giving error of DNS SRV record. I already created SRV records and the service is also started. Please Send me the complete configuration of LDAP CUM DNS on rhel5.
First of all I am new user on fedora forum and I love Linux (special Redhat flavours) and want to replace windows into Linux Everywhere. I am having some issue in configuring PDC on Fedora,I want to replace my company Windows Domain controller and file server into fedora file and PDC, I tried from web and through 389-directory server but didn't succeed even once, how to configure PDC with Samba 4 + 389-directory Server, I have heard samba 4 is having awesome support and its better then windows DC, configuring Complete PDC. (Whatever need to configure PDC i.e. DNS, SAMBA 4, SWAT, WEBMIN, 389-Directory Server, Windows sync,).
I need to set up a domain controller that can communicate with windows machines as well as be accessable by the domain name and allow me to log in to the domain from my windows machines. i do have the novells guide to compTIA linux+ book but i cant figure out what i need to do to set up this server in the way i described above.
I am looking for a way to deploy Linux in the same manner as a MS network. I want my desktop clients to authenticate against a DC, but Im not sure what would take the place of a Domain Controller in Linux. In addition, I am not sure if I could be able to manage user rights via a central server.
I have read about Samba as a domain controller, but Im not sure if that is what I want. In addition, I have read about LDAP, but again Im not sure if that is what I need to use. When I researched RADIUS servers, I was even more confused.
I want to Migrate Win2003 Domain Controller to Samba with All Settings Current Setup: Working Win2003 Domain Controller (DC)with home directories, group policies, shared printer, disk quotas. how to migrate all these settings to Samba Domain Controller. I have tried to search but didn't get detailed information.
Every thing works fine When I log in it creates a folder on the server for the user. when the user logs out, it is copying the user data to the server, for example folders like Documents,Favorites and so on.
My problem is,Im using a Dutch version of Windows 7 but the folders sync are English
