Samba setup with winbind: Error looking up domain users
Posted on 2006-05-26
I am trying to setup the samba for one linux box. I am not a regular linux user so please bare with me. Currently, I have a windows domain setup where all the windows box use domain to access all the computers and access remote folders. (Windows xp for pcs and 2003 for the domain server)
Now, I have added a linux machine to this network. Now, i need to share files on the linux machine to only certain users. Therefore, I was trying to configure samba to work as a member of already existing domain so that i can give permission accordingly. However, I am stuck where the linux machine shows up on the network places but I cannot access any of the folders or if I can access it cannot modify them. Remember, I need to restrict view and write access.
While debugging i found that when tried to do following
i recieved "Error looking up domain users" error.
I don't know what information to provide to further explain my situation as I don't know what would be helpful.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading and/or replying to my post.
