I am having a few problems that are driving me nuts.
I have a small LAN here at work consisting of a mix of win9x and XP work stations and a server with samba setup as a PDC.
The main programs that are being run are: ACT!, MS Office with Outlook as the mail client and Acrobat.
I have setup a few shares on the linux box so that if we need to update a file, it will only have to be done once and not go around every WS and change the file. There are a few other shares setup for backup purposes and one so that we can keep the ACT! email attachments centralized.
I have tried to setup XP with roaming profiles, but have been unsuccessful. I have ran the registry patch that comes with the latest version of samba and created the machine accounts, but to no avail. I have given up on that project for now due to time constraints. What I want to do is very basic.....you'd think.
Problem arises with ACT! and outlook. Outlook on it's own works fine, but ACT! relies on outlook to send/receive email. Due to some permissions it won't work properly according to this document: http://itdomino.saleslogix.com/act.nsf/206aa14021c9b916072569d50081789e/c25235c6be1bdce407256b1a0070b30d?OpenDocument
I have gone through step by step to no avail. It won't even let me re-install the patch. I keep getting the lovely "Contact your administrator" which is me btw.
I have setup the users in the adm group on the linux box, but that doesn't seem to work either.
How do I allow the users to destroy their XP boxes with full access? I am running TIGHT on time, so I gotta think of something, and this would probably work since XP complains about not having enough rights for this or that. BTW in workgroup mode and on the Win9x stations this problem does not arise.
