The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5627
logon scripts are not being executed by Windows XP
Last modified: 2009-04-04 08:02:57 UTC
I'm running samba 3.0.31 on Fedora Core 8 x64 that compiled using samba-3.0.31/packaging/RHEL/makerpms.sh. logon scripts are not being loaded automatically. As an example I created a user jdoe and his LDAP info has:
and when I log in as him, using a Windows XP Pro SP3 computer, he gets R:, but his jdoe.bat isn't ran which is:
net use s: \\10.8.16.2\share /yes
net use m: \\arrowhead\hppictures /yes
net use p: \\arrowhead\public /yes
net use v: \\arrowhead\archist /yes
when you look in "my computer" he's not shared any of those drives. However, if i click start, run, and type in \\roark\netlogon\scripts\jdoe.bat the script runs fine and he is shared those drives and now they show up in "My Computer".
At the URL above ( http://www.mdah.state.ms.us/samba/samba.zip ) it is a zip file containing jdoe and jdoe$ LDAP info, my smb.conf created with testparm, and a log level 10 output from when I joined jdoe$ to the domain, logged in as him, saw that he didn't have his netlogon script ran, and logged out as him. I did not manually run \\roark\netlogon\scripts\jdoe.bat as him but know it works for all other users and I've had to place a shortcut to their login script in their startup folder as a work around. I can provide a log level 10 of running \\roark\netlogon\scripts\jdoe.bat if needed.
Adam, I don't actually see a Sam Logon request in this log file which would explain
why the logon script is not being run. Seems the client is using cached information.
But neither do I see a net_auth() call either. Can you upload a raw tcpdump
taken from the Samba DC?
$ tcpdump -s 0 -w /tmp/dump.pcap host <client IP addr>
Created attachment 3507 [details]
output of tcpdump -s 0 -w /tmp/dump.pcap host 10.8.3.136 while logging in from 10.8.3.136 to the PDC
attached is the output of tcpdump -s 0 -w /tmp/dump.pcap host 10.8.3.136 on the PDC while logging in as jdoe from 10.8.3.136 which is a Windows XP SP3 computer. \\roark\netlogon\scripts\jdoe.bat is not being ran
