[K12OSN] Re: Implementing SAMBA PDC

(Must remember to hit reply to all to get the list address in there.  sigh)

I find swat or just text editing the smb.conf file easier to do then
Webmin's Samba module.  Maybe I am missing something.  I do like the fact
that Webmin will sync *nix & windoze users if you use their user/group tool.
What I need is a limited user/group tool that will allow a local admin to
add/delete client users without the ability to touch any of the system
users.  Is there such a beast for the *min?

Also, there's supposed to be a PAM+Samba module that will help things along
for authentication but I haven't attempted it yet.

msec in Mandrake 8.2 is killing me!  It resets file permission and
apparently turns off services I need at regular intervals.  I have to get
that sorted out ASAP.  It wreaks havoc on Samba...

All in all though, once you get the bugs worked out, it's solid as a rock...

Any cool netlogon scripts to share by chance? ;-)

Samba isn't as daunting as installing NT4, providing you have some useful
tools before you start.

Here is a list of tools I found very useful......

The latest copy of O'Reilly's book on SAMBA. It explains the main SAMBA
config file very well, and has a good list of all the variable available.

Webmin. I find GUI tools a lot easier to use. Webmin overcomes the problem
of syncing security between Linux and Samba. One GOTCHA, the MD5 perl
script MUST BE installed BEFORE you create users. Then set Webmin to sync
between modules. Webmin also has a batch mode for user creation, don't know
if it automagically creates SAMBA shares.

So that's my 2c worth.
