configuring Samba to bridge networks
Posted on 2004-11-05
I current have 3 small networks. On the edge of 2 of them sit window 2k3 servers, and on the 3rd sits Mr. Samba. Everything works fine and dandy in a fail-safe world where the internet is up and running. However, upon a glick in the network the entire Samba subnet can no longer do anything network related, including connecting to the samba server in the same subnet.
I've looked over the smbd.conf file, and believe my problem to be "security = server". From what I understand, this passes all authentication requests immediately to the DC. However, when i set it to domain, nothing works.
I appreciate any help one can give me helping Samba retain some information, or at least allow users to connect from the local subnet even though there isn't a link to the DC.
Thanks in advance!
