Samba on FC3



Hi Folks:

I am continuing to work with samba on FC3 for use as a file server etc.

I have set up my server according to the instructions on http://us3.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/FastStart.html#id2535778

Here is my smb.conf file

 [root srvfs-01 conf]# cat smb.conf
[global]
        workgroup = MCASCHOOL
        netbios name = SRVFS-01
        server string = MCA File Server
        security = DOMAIN
        winbind separator = \
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        winbind enum users = yes
        winbind enum groups = yes
        printcap name = cups
        disable spoolss = Yes
        show add printer wizard = No
        idmap uid = 15000-20000
        idmap gid = 15000-20000
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        use sendfile = Yes
        printing = cups

[home]
        writable = true
        path = /home
        comment = Home Directories
        browsable = yes

[public]
#       delete readonly = yes
        writeable = yes
        path = /home/public
#       force directory mode = 777
#       force group = nobody
#       force user = nobody
#       public = yes
#       create mode = 777
#       directory mode = 777

[pictures]
#       delete readonly = yes
        writeable = yes
        path = /home/pictures
#       force directory mode = 777
#       force group = nobody
#       force user = nobody
#       public = yes
#       create mode = 777

#       directory mode = 777

[ghost_images]
        path = /home/ghost
#       delete readonly = yes
        writeable = yes
#       force directory mode = 777
#       force group = nobody
#       force user = nobody
#       public = yes
#       create mode = 777
#       directory mode = 777

[rpms]
        path = /home/rpms
#       delete readonly = yes
        writeable = yes
#       force directory mode = 777

[profile]
        path =/home/profile
        writeable = yes


Please note that a number of things are commented out -- those were experiments that did not work 

The process that I use to create a samba user is as follows

1. Create windows account
2. Have the user change their password
3. Create a samba user using the windows user (I use the system-config-samba applet)
4. get their password from them to input into the samba user (Yes, I know this is terrible security procedure, but it's the only way I can get the blasted thing to work)
5. Create their home directory
6. Create internal folders (like public_html)(once I get it all working right I will use skel
7. chown to their username and group
8. chmod to 755

There has got to be a better way  -- fortunately I am on summer break right now so there are no students in my network, so thankfully all this is theroretical right now, but in 2 months I will have 200+ students needing to use the system, so I have to get this resolved.

The specific problems that I am having are:

1. User authentication against the domain 
2. User creation etc - long and convuluded process 
3. Profile directory for windows (to store roaming profiles WILL NOT WORK -- even if it has 777 permissions -- I have absolutely no clue on that one)


Comments or suggestions are most welcome

If anyone prefers to work with me directly via phone or IM, that can be arranged as well

The domain is a Windows 2003 Active Directory Domain

Thanks again for all your help
