Setting up Samba on a Solaris 5.8 where Win usernames are different form those under Solaris
Posted on 2004-11-01
Good morning experts,
I have Samba 3.0.2 running on a Solaris/Sparc box and currently having problems connecting to it from my Win boxes.
// Fictitious scenario...
On the Solaris side I have a user named solaris_user1
On the Solaris side I have a user named solaris_user2
On a Win XP Pro side I have a user named winxppro_user
On a Win XP Home side I have a user named winxphome_user
All are running as Workgroup (because of the XP Home edition)
The solaris_user1 and solaris_user2 have been added to the smbpassword.
This issue here is that the Win usernames do not match those under Solaris. Is there any way around this or do they have to absolutly match?
