I am facing a problem which joining my linux machine to SAMBA Primary Domain Controller (Running on Centos 5). I am able to join Windows XP machine to the domain, but i have no idea how to do it on Linux Client.
I've been configuring a PDC using samba I used this tutorial url as reference. It seems all went well during the installation and configuration not until when I try to join a windows machine to the domain.
Scenario: When the authentication dialog box prompts the username and password of the domain administrator. I supply root as username and its corresponding password. Then I will prompt an error "The user name could not be found. But, I have noticed that when I supply a wrong password of root the it will prompt "Login failure: unknown user name or bad password. It seems that the windows machine was able to recognize the account somehow.
I try to setup a client (for password /etc/passwd) to my samba server, without using the kerberos. let's make it simple: just samba. here are the errors: I have installed winbind, portmap, and samba/smbclient packages on the workstation linux ubuntu , which is intended to be client to samba for /etc/password attached to the server. At boot nothing changed, and the /etc/password is not attached to samba. So my passwords are stil the local of hte client, and not the server. This is my config of the client workstation:
Good evening, I get the following error when prompted for my user name and password credentials that have access to the domain rights on the server. After typing in root and the password I get the following.
"The specified computer account could not be found. Contact an administrator to verify the account is in the domain. If the account has been deleted, unjoin, reboot and rejoin the domain."
Posted below is my smb.conf file, however I feel like I am screwing up the last steps with group-mapping, net commands, and creating accounts.
[global] workgroup = SCRUGGSHOME passdb backend = tdbsam printcap name = cups add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -m %u
A very strange thing happened to me today after upgrading a Lenny server to Squeeze. All seems to be working great except for the fact that I cannot join the server to our domain (made a work copy of the virtual machine holding Debian, upgraded that, renamed and changed IP).
The problem I'm having is related to Samba as far as I can tell. On the Lenny server(s) I have the 'net' command to join a server to a domain but not on the upgraded version (Squeeze). It just says command not found and there's indeed no 'net' in /usr/bin where it's supposed to be.
I imagine that something went wrong upgrading Samba although the rest works, the daemons are running, kerberos works (kinit, klist), and so on, I only miss the net command.
Is there a way to install that separately or which package do I have to reinstall (samba-common, sambafs, ...)?
I have other servers (clean install and upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze) that do have the command in /usr/bin. Can I just copy it over from one to another or do I have to remove and reinstall Samba all together?
I've setup my samba pdc with ldap, and I can see my shared files (public), which i think is an indication that my samba is working. But I can't seems to get my win2k8 machine to join my domain.
My domain admin is : root system admin: root password for both domain admin and system admin are the same The message that I get from Win2k8 when I try to join a domain is "The specified computer account could not be found. Contact an administrator to verify the account is in the domain. If the account has been deleted unjoin, reboot, and rejoin the domain"
I'm not able to create Samba Account. it is showing the error message as below
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user <username>. Does this user exist in the UNIX password database ? Failed to modify password entry for user <username>
Unix accounts are created in Corporate Office, which is in US. We had a dedicated link from our office to US office. Now this link has been disconnected & now we have a VPN connection through internet to US Office. there is a firewall on both the sides. While creating samba account i tried to give netstat command & i saw it is trying to make a connection to the Unix Server at US, but the connection is not getting established it is showing SYN_SENT.
The port from the Home directory server trying to connect to the Unix server is connecting using Dynamic port but the Unix server port it is showing as PORTMAP. Network guys are not opening all the ports in the firewall. Kindly let me know the DESTINATION PORT that the home directory server is trying to connect to Unix Server, so that i can ask my network guys to open that perticular port. So that i can create Samba account to the users.
I have configured samba server on fedora machine and i am trying to authenticate a winxp machine through samba server but the issue is winxp machine is not becoming the part of the domain. The error is A domain controller for the domain HOMEDOMAIN could not be contacted.Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly. If the name is correct, click Details for troubleshooting information.
here is the configuration file text..
# Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN (8) # Date: 2010/01/31 18:51:36 [global] workgroup = HOMEDOMAIN server string = Samba as Domain Controller.
I am starting a MCSE course and part of it is to create and configure a domain etc etc I have done this and all my windows XP and 7 machines on my LAN are now functioning as part of the domain just great.
Unfortuntely, I have several Open suse machines which are currently not part of the domain yet (they are in a basic Workgroup).
get these computers onto the domain so that a user can log on using their domain credentials and I can apply security policies and what not?
I am practising setting up a small network using UBUNTU as a PDC through SAMBA to service xp clients.
I have sucessfully setup DNS on the Ubuntu server using Bind9 and can nslookup from both the client and the server by FQDN and can also ping ipaddress.
I have setup a basic smb.conf file however when I try to add the xp client to the domain I get an error message saying a domain controller for the domain could not be contacted.
I have disabled the firewalls on both the server and the xp client and still get the same error message when trying to join the domain. I've checked my network settings on the client, its set to use a static IP address and the DNS server and WINS server are set as my Ubuntu Samba PDC address.
I haven't been able to see anything odd in the smb.conf file that might cause this issue. I can connect directly to the shares using the samba network account that I created by going to start run and typing in the unc path.
Not sure what the cause of this issue is, I thought it might be a DNS issue on the client. One odd thing I noticed is that when I do nslookup using just the server name and not the FQDN i get a message in dos saying that the default server cannot be found but says that the server name for the [ipadress] cannot be found. It does list the correct ip.
I'm not sure what is causing the problem of stopping my xp client from joining the Ubuntu Samba PDC. I'm using UBUNTU server 10.04.
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.
I set up a Samba server on my openSuSE 11.2 machine and I can connect to it locally with the local ip and with my actuall ip. My friend however cannot. I tried to have him ping my ip and that wouldn't even work. I'm confused and wondering why it doesn't work. We share a lot of files and this would make both of our lives much easier.
I am trying to setup my opensue 11.3 server as a pdc using openldap and samba I am continuously getting a network path not found error message on my windows xp box. I already verified that the network settings are good.

I'm setting up a PDC Samba server on centos5.4. All tasks are well done but on adding new machine in my domain I have a this error message: Error occurred when attempt to join your machine in domain "invalid user name".

I think that the machine account is missed or miss matched.
I have everything networked properly, as far as I can tell, both computers see each other... I can use putty to port in and use my Linux machine (Debian 4). When I go to map network drive on my XP machine, I can see the computer, but not the shared folder. After some googling I found that i have to create my Windows user name ont he Linux machine as a user as well. Unforunately, that user is 'Administrator'. So I told Linux to force user, and it created it, and did smbpasswd command and added the user to the samba list. Still nothing.
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?
I'm trying to set up a fileserver on my 10.04 machine, and access the files from Windows 7 via wifi. I can see everything alright, but the transfer speed to Windows never gets higher than 70KBps. Both computers can access the web at 800+KBps. I've also checked with an OS X machine on the same network, which was also extremely slow, so I'm fairly sure that the problem is on the server's side.
I'd like to access a samba/SSH server which itself is connected to a VPN Server, therefore acting as a VPN Client. As soon as the VPN Connection is established, samba and ssh connections to this VPN Client get a timeout. But not all of them.
To get a better understanding I made an overview. The first one is a general network overview, without any VPN Connection, the second one with the VPN Connection established.
Network Overview without VPN I can access the server in several ways: *From the router via ssh (router runs ipcop with busybox) *From the laptop via ssh (putty via Windows 7) *From the laptop via samba *From the internet via ssh (port forwarding to the ssh server)
Everything is working as it should.
Now the server that runs ssh and samba service connects to a VPN Server on the Internet, this is also working fine. Now it gets weird. The only samba/SSH connection that is still working is ssh directly from the router to the server. Everything else gets a timeout: *From the laptop via ssh (putty via Windows 7) *From the laptop via samba *From the internet via ssh (port forwarding to the ssh server) Network Overview with VPN active
Why is that? It seems from the little understanding I have of vpn and networking, that incoming packages (like samba request from the laptop) don't get send directly back over eth0 but over the vpn connection. This seems somewhat logic, BUT ssh from the router is still working. Why from the router and not from the laptop? I really can't get my head around it.
tldr; One Client acts as VPN Client and samba/SSH Server. As soon as the VPN Connection is established samba/SSH stop working, but only partially.
I have set samba domain. I am able to add win 7 and xp clients. All r working fine. But I have a doubt. If I shutdown the samba pdc server, I should be able to login the client machine with the same profile (which I had, when the samba pdc server was up). Now , if I shutdown the sambapdc, I am able to login the client machine, but new profile is being created. How to avoid this.
How to say to samba that the client machine should load the same profile which was created when the server was up and running. I do not want the client machines to create new a profile when the server is down bcoz in windows domain, when the windows domain is shutdown, the client machines are able to login with the same profile (the profile which was created when the domain was up). I wish to have same thing in samba pdc also.
I don't know if this is possible... I want that only some of a Windows Domain(Samba) users can to logging in a machine.For example: The user Peter of the domain WORKSPACE can connect to the PC1, but the user Charly of the domain WORKSPACE can not connect to the PC1. How I can implement this?
Can anyone point me in the direction of setting up shares for windows machines on centos. I have found a few document but never managed to get it up and running correctly. I need to be able to get access to subfolder etc for different users. Is there any way of doing it with some sort of gui?
I have installed CentOS 5.5 along with the Samba package. I have it configured (i believe), but when I try to access a share, it is not accepting my UN/PW. I have copied the smb.conf file from a working computer over to this one, but it is still not accepting my login. Anyone know of any other files I should check?
I have moved a working smb.conf file to this new box, and both computers have the same UN/PW's
I am trying to set up samba in my CentOS virtual machine that is running on a Windows 7 host. I have found a tutorial in the How-Tos on this site but I'm not sure if they are exact and I'm paranoid about messing something up. The link to the tutorial is below. Is there anything that I should do different or anything that I should be aware of? Also, once this is set up, how do I transfer files between the two machines?
Im having trouble setting my SAMBA server correctly. I have two Win machines, one with WIN7 and one with XP. I have one Ubuntu machine and Ubuntu Server 10.04. My problem is that I can only acess files from the Win 7 Machine. When I try to map out the shared dirs on my serverI get asked for user and password, when I enter my creditensials it dosent help.. What to do? I used the sample smb.conf file and open for no restrictions..
I spent all day learning some concepts of Samba which I left while preparing for RHCE.One of them is how to permanently mount (fstab entry) windows shared folder.Manually mount command is running fine for me.
