    Samba User Privileges


    Was hoping someone here could help, I have spent the last few weeks trying to figure out where I have gone wrong. In a nutshell am running Samba as a PDC on my Fedora Core 5 box. All domain logins work great, for the exception that none of the users have admin privileges so I can't install any software on my Windows XP clients when logged in as a domain user.

    Here is my smb.conf file (if its any use)

    # Samba config file created using SWAT
    # from (
    # Date: 2006/10/30 16:16:56

    workgroup = TECHZONE
    netbios name = EAGLE
    server string = Samba Linux Server
    username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    time server = Yes
    logon script = %U.bat
    logon drive = t:
    logon home = \\eagle\home\%u
    domain logons = Yes
    os level = 65
    preferred master = Yes
    domain master = Yes
    ldap ssl = no
    admin users = root, admin, administrator, @terry, @root, terry, terryj, terryjones, super

    comment = Server Logon Service
    path = /usr/local/samba/netlogon
    valid users = root

    comment = Global Share
    path = /dump
    valid users = root, admin, administrator
    read list = root, admin, administrator
    write list = root, admin, administrator, @terry, @root, terry, terryj, terryjones, super
    read only = No
    guest ok = Yes

    [nt roaming profiles]
    comment = NT Roaming Profiles
    path = /samba/profiles
    force user = %U
    read only = No
    create mask = 0600
    directory mask = 0700
    profile acls = Yes
    root preexec = /etc/samba/scripts/mk_sambadir"/samba/profiles/%U" "%U" "%g"
    If you need any more info just let me know.

    Thanks in advance

    Create local admin privileges for the users that need to install software.

    am assuming that you mean local as in my Windows XP clients not the samba server. I have logged in Locally to this machine as an administrator and created a new account named root with same password to that on the samba server and added it to the administrators group but still have no joy.

    Could there be something am doing wrong here?

    When working with domain accounts, under Control Panel click on User Accounts and add the appropriate domain accounts and set their privilege level this way. This will allow for domain logons without the need to logon locally.
