    Domain Configuration


    Alright I have tried for a few hours to set this domain up, but cannot seem to get it working.

    Slack 10 with Samba V3.

    Code:
    # Samba config file created using SWAT
    # from 192.168.0.107 (192.168.0.107)
    # Date: 2005/04/03 13:21:53
    
    # Global parameters
    [global]
    	workgroup = DOMAIN
    	server string = Files
    	encrypt passwords = No
    	name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
    	logon path = 
    	logon home = 
    	domain logons = Yes
    	os level = 34
    	preferred master = Yes
    	domain master = Yes
    	wins support = Yes
    	ldap ssl = no
    	valid users = matthew, george
    	admin users = root
    
    [Downloads]
    	path = /server/downloads
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [Music]
    	path = /server/music
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [Joe]
    	path = /server/joe
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [Matthew]
    	path = /server/matthew
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [George]
    	path = /server/george
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [photo]
    	path = /server/photo
    	read only = No
    
    [src]
    	path = /usr/src
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [web]
    	path = /server/web
    	read only = No
    	guest ok = Yes
    
    [netlogon]
    	comment = The Domain logon service
    	path = /server/netlogon
    	write list = matthew, root, ntadmin
    	read only = No
    I am trying to logon to the domain with a Windows XP Pro computer, and when I enter "root" as the user name it comes back with "Access is Denied".

    Have you added root as a samba user:

    "smbpasswd -m -a root"

    I'ts normaly better to create a user, "ntadmin" or alike, to do your administration with though.

    When I try the command here is the message that I get:

    Code:
    root@server:/home/matthew# smbpasswd -m -a root
    Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user root$.
    This happens on any account I Try and add.

    You have to add a UNIX account first, to be able to add a SMBaccount

    And if this is a domainserver, shouldn't the OSlevel be set to 66?

    And btw : Don't use the same password for samba root, as for unix root. That'll just mess things up. Acctually, to be safe..
    Create a user with root-priveligies, instead of using root as loginname.
    You should acctually not use root as a login, just as local config, for security reasons.

    I don't care about the security risks involved. I am fulloy aware of them and would just prefer to get this working under one account atleast. I figured ti would be simpler to use Root. However, now I can add the account but the permission is still denied.

    ok..

    since you already have the user root in the unix passwd file, you don't have to add this user.
    Add sambauser root, and also the machinename..

    try the command : smbuser -a root -m "MACHINENAME" and then use smbpasswd root

    I'm not 100% sure, but I do belive you have to add a machineaccount.

    And also. set you os level=66 in the smb.conf file.
