Question on Winbind
Hi, I have been pulling out hair on this one.
I am trying to get a debian box to share files to an NT 4 network.
I installed Samba, works great. I also installed Winbind and that also
works, but I have a problem when trying to set file permissions.
When I do a - getent group or a - getent passwd the mappings show from
the NT PDC but the uid and gid are identical on some users. Like say
User1 has a uid of 10004, but looking at getent group shows that 10004
is the GID for Domain Users on the NT box. So, basically the UID and GID
are the same for some users and groups. This is causing a serious
problem when trying to set permissions on certain folders for users.
All the instructions I have see say to set the lines -- winbind uid =
10000-20000 and winbind gid = 10000-20000 in the smb.conf.
So I figured Linux would give the id numbers a first come first basis,
but it abviously dosent.
I have completely uninstalled, purged and reinstalled both Samba and
Winbind, and still the same mappings. I have also changed the smb.conf
file to give completely different mappings of --winbind uid =
15000-20000 - winbind gid = 20001-25000 , but when I do a getent group
or getent passwd it still shows mappings starting at 10000. I have
restarted all the related services and rebooted the machine, still no
luck. It is authenticating properly to the domain when browsing, but I
really need to get proper permissions set. I searched the web for 2
hours and didn't find a bit of info on this problem. I'm stuck.
It's as if there is a database file somewhere in the system that has
kept this information from my orgional install and won't give it up.
Thanks for any help
