RE: [K12OSN] SMB-LDAP and allowing Teachers to view Students homedirectories



I am having a similar problem. Iam authenticationg against active
directory with the thin clients, using pam_mount to mount their
homedirs. i am having permission problems with thier homedirs on
windows. i just installed SFU on the active directory server, but now i
cannot figure out how to make the UID match. for example, user1
permissions show on the win home dire as owner halt group domain users.
user1 cannot create a new doc and save it on thier home folder

Can you use extended attributes/ACLs? I did this with a FreeBSD file
server
we use with Active Directory, and though it took some time, the
permissions
issues were eliminated.

Subject: [K12OSN] SMB- LDAP and allowing Teachers to view Students
homedirectories

Hi all,

I'm helping with the upgrade of a local school's single K12LTSP server
to using a LDAP server and more K12LTSP labs.

Currently they have the standard Linux convention for students in that
their user name is the same as their primary group.

For example:
uid=1001(student) gid=1001(student) groups=1001(student)

The Teacher for that Student is then a member of that Student's
primary
group:
uid=2001(teacher) gid=2001(teacher) groups=2001(teacher),1001(student)

A Teacher can than access the Student's home directory as the
Student's
home directory's Group permissions are turned on.
eg.
$ ls - ld ~student
drwsrws---  56 student student 4096 Dec 13 19:35 /home/student


Here's the rub.  I'm having problems thinking of how this would best
translate to a SMB- LDAP environment.  Both security wise and
simplicity
wise.  That is, how can I best allow Teachers the ability to access
Student's home directory files.

This is an example student in the new system:
uid=1004(student) gid=513(Domain Users)
groups=914(Students),513(Domain
Users)

This is an example teacher in the new system:
uid=1005(teacher) gid=513(Domain Users) groups=523(Staff),513(Domain
Users)

These are the default permissions for a Student's home directory:
$ ls - ld ~student
drwx------   3 student Domain Users 4096 Dec 13 20:53 /home/student

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Julian
