RE: Samba

i hope you already figured out how to put samba as a PDC ,

i have found that few weeks ago when i was wondering the same

i'm sure it will help people that asking the same question to themself :)

What about a howto on the installation of a web front end for managing a SAMBA PDC
such as Idealx Management Console (Samba Console) I think that would be a challenge coz i've been tryin to install that for months now...

I am using samba 3 as pdc for 2 years now. It was a little bit tricky the first time but in the end it was just a game.

Till has just written such a tutorial: :) :)

The tutorial on does not appear to be complete though. Don't you have to add accounts for the windows pc's also.

till 12th December 2005 10:27

The Howto is complete. If you join the domain with a windows PC, the machine account is created automatically by the add machine script defined in the samba.conf.

I copied this from the howto

# Useradd scripts
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -m %u
delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel -r %u
add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usernod -G %g %u
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -s /bin/false/ -d /var/lib/nobody %u
idmap uid = 15000-20000
idmap gid = 15000-20000

Is the bold line correct? I don't have a command "/usr/sbin/usernod".
