ive got a debian with samba as a file server running, and the windows 2000 server runs the domain authentification. Is there are a way user can change their passwords in only one place? is there a way for samba to look for the users passwords in the windows PDC?

thanks ashley

In smb.conf, you have to set the "password server =" option to the netbios name of your PDC server, then set
"security" option to "domain" or "server". See the documentation for these two options in the man page of "smb.conf" for more details.

Oh and for the "domain" security option, you have to make your samba server join the domain. See e.g. http://samba.linuxbe.org/en/samba/config/domain-1.html

You also need to make sure you have Winbind installed and running.  Then you can give your windows accounts access to the shares

Check my comments at the following question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Linux_Networking/Q_21078315.html

Do keep in mind that this solution is for classic NT-domains only, not for Active Directory!

If you are using AD you should look into using ldap to integrate the authentication.
