Description Sven Strickroth 2006-07-28 06:34:48 UTC
after an upgrade from 3.0.21b to 3.0.23a "add machine script" makes problems.
The script gets correctly executed, but the machine-account is uppercase now, useradd requires it to be lowercase.
Comment 1 Sven Strickroth 2006-07-28 06:41:15 UTC
To be more clear:
(i don't know if the machine-name was lowercase in 3.0.21b), because my add-machine-script lowercases it first, befor passing to useradd. - The problem is now, that the unix-account is lowercase and the entry in smbpasswd is added uppercase.



samba logs this:
Jul 28 12:15:06 fileserver smbd_vscan-clamav[19734]: [2006/07/28 12:15:06, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:build_sam_account(1202)
Jul 28 12:15:06 fileserver smbd_vscan-clamav[19734]:   build_sam_account: smbpasswd database is corrupt!  username PC40$ with uid 1040 is not in unix passwd database!

so the error is that the name isn't stored lowercase in smbasswd any more.

already fixed in SAMBA_3_0_23.
