Thread: Samba server

  1. #1

    Samba server

    I have a samba server, running, i have the users setup on the system with identical logins (username & password) to their windows systems, unless i set the option for a password server in the smb.conf file the users are prompted with a login box, i have enterd every password inc root into this login box but can not get through. If i set the password server option to go to my PDC, the logon is seemles,

    My question,

    Is there a way to tell the samba server that it is the password server. I have tried using

    password server = sambaserver
    security = server

    however this does not work at all

    From my understanding of the problem-which could be wrong?

    it sounds like you have created a user and then made a password with

    passwd (username)

    When using samba you need to add an extra password for windows to use which is created with:

    smbpasswd -a (username)

    smbpasswd -x (username), deletes it.

    well i hoped that helped? ;D
    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P
