Samba as PDC-- i'm stuck!!!
Hi all, please forgive me but i am very new to Linux. I am hoping that my problem is the result of myself doing something wrong that one of the Samba pros here can identify right away. Here's where i am at:
I am trying to set up Samba as a primary domain controller on debian linux. I have Debian installed, and i have Samba config'd already. I am able to access SWAT, which is a big help to a Linux newbie like me, lol.
Now, i have tried to follow the necessary steps in adding the info to the smb.conf file in order to get the PDC working. However, i am stumped about all this stuff about adding users and having another root user in smbpasswd, and groups etc etc. I am likely screwing up here because obviously when i try to connect from a XP Pro machine and try to join my domain using root, it tells me can't find user.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for what i have to do to get all this user stuff figured out?
