    In Likewiseopen active directory linux user has access to all user profile


    I am using Unbunto desktop and installed "likewise open" so that my linux client can access windows active directory(join the domain). On server side i have windows 2003 server. On windows 2003 server in active directory i have assigned each user a disk space.
    I have sucessfully joined linux (ubunto) box to the active directory domain but my linux box has access (& it can use) to all other user diskpace ( they can browse other users) and when i joined windows xp client with the same server it works properly( xp client cant access or use other diskpace).
    Please help / guide me how to resolve the fault.

    where did you allocate the disk space, on the windows server machine and then shared, or on the linux machine?

    thats not a linux problem then. like said above, your window server sounds misconfigured.

    @jledhead, you did not get my question

    If i have misconfigured windows 2003 server then why my xp windows machine acting perfectly, only linux machine is causing fault.

    jledhead is right.
    The ressources (diskspace) are on the windows server side, therefore the permissions have to be enforced there.

    The clients can only use, what the server permits them to use.

    While configuring likewise open, the linux accounts maybe have been assigned too many rights. Are they maybe in a administrative group?
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
