Drive Mapping Passwords
Posted on 2004-10-16
I currently have a 2000 server and am switching over to a Linux Appliance server which is running
Samba 2.2.8a. There is no command line structure web based set-up only.
I'm not sure if this is a Windows problem or Samba but here it goes.
Under 2000 Profesional (also need info for 98SE clients), on the Samba server I set-up multiple users no passwords. From a Windows based workstation I cannot login as only user, when I add password to Samba set-up I login no problem. But when I map a drive on Windows with the reconnect at login, even though I put in the desired username and password (so it remembers it for the mapping) when the workstation reboots it still asks me for the password. My client does not want a password input on the stations. Also the user names from the 2000 server were not carried over. The client want all new users on the samba server, which I did. The network was setup as workgroup no domain here.
