Samba machine account creation problems
I've just estabilished Samba 3.0.4 PDC. Windows 98 users can access shares, but winnt adn winxp can't. As read in manual I added machine accounts but it didn't help. In logs I read "no machine1$ account in domain" but pdbedit shows that machine1$ account is created. Why users aren't added to the domain ?
Nedd to add workstations to domain
you will need:
1 - enable users to access to samba, they could be the same unix users or others, or mapped users, see smbpasswd.
2 - users accounts for workstations.
3 - add workstation to the doamain like you do in any other microsoft native ambient.
man smb, man useradd, man smbpasswd and google.
I know that you'll need to change some registry strings to add windows xp or windows 2000 workstations to samba domains. Google helps you, and your /var/log/messages to.
