running redhat es 5 with samba rpm version of samba-3.0.23c-2, it appears that the encrypt passwords = no option will no longer allow for single users to be specified for share access. The box has has been configured to authenticate against an ldap server via authconfig....authentication for normal use (console, ssh) works great....I'm having some trouble with samba using single ldap
users or local users....It's rather weird, shares in which access restrictions
are based upon ldap groups are working fine, getent group shows local
and ldap groups, however attempting to assign access to a share for
either a single ldap user or a local user doesn't work, and produces the
following error when trying to hit the share:
smb_pam_passcheck: PAM: smb_pam_auth failed - Rejecting User myuser1 !
For local users, I've added local os accounts as well as
accounts in the
samba database with smbpasswd
This needs much more information: smb.conf and debug level 10 log of winbind.
