Default FC5 Samba Troubles

I found an article at http://www.enterprisenetworkingplane...le.php/3487081 that explained how to join Samba 3 to an Active Directory domain.

I followed everything that the tutorial said to do and everything worked fine. However, I can't browse samba shares. I'm presented with a username and password logon box on windows machines, but no username and password combination works. The only change i had to make that is different from the tutorial is found in /etc/nsswitch.conf

The tutorial said to do the following:
passwd: compat winbind
group: compat winbind
shadow: compat

The only problem with this is that when I make this change my root account goes crazy and the machine wouldn't boot correctly. To solve this problem, I changed the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to the following.

passwd: compat winbind files
group: compat winbind files
shadow: compat files

Also, going off of the tutorial "wbinfo -u", "wbinfo -g", "getend passwd", and "net ads info" all show the proper information.

This is pretty open ended question, but I'm at a loss on how to resolve this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Samba 3

I've been using Samba 3 for ages now on SLES9. For /etc/nsswitch.conf i normally place files first and then winbind. I tend to remove compat as it can confuse suse.
As for the root account going mad, thats a little strange. Unless the id's are being resolved correctly and there is an active directory user called root. That could confuse the os. Although the uid's would be different. Are you planning to use Samba for login purposes? Or just file shares.

I think I found my problem. SeLinux was blocking my shares. To solve the problem, I turned SELinux off for my samba shares.

Found this in "man samba_selinux"

You can disable SELinux protection for the samba daemon by executing:

setsebool -P smbd_disable_trans 1
service smb restart

Everything appears to be working fine now.
