I migrate samba 3.0.25 to samba 3.4.3 because the old version don't work with seven in a domain samba.
i migrate smbpasswd to dbsam, my [global] smb.conf under :
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = domtest4
netbios name = SRVTEST4
server string = Serveur SAMBA TEST REDHAT4
encrypt passwords = yes
#smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
null passwords = Yes
#passdb backend = smbpasswd
passdb backend = tdbsam
name resolve order = wins host lmhosts bcast
log level = 2
log file = /var/log/samba/%U.log
#domain admin group = root
admin users = admin root
domain logons = Yes
security = user
os level = 95
# os level = 65
preferred master = true
domain master = yes
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes
#local master = true
#template homedir = /home/
logon script = logon.bat
logon path =
logon home =
hide files = logon.bat
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
guest ok = yes
Now i try to create new users with this command :
useradd -c "SMB INFOS" -d /dev/null -g serv_direction -s /bin/false test1
i use pdbedit
pdbedit -a test1 -h=/home/users/test1
After on windows xp or seven i try to declare a new user, the answer is user test1 not find in domain domtest4.
i don't now why !
adding users definetely works well. Probably some kind of configuration issue, not a bug.
i resolve this bug, vhen i make rpm -e system-config-samba-1.2.21-1.el4.1.noarch
and rpm -e samba-3.0.25b-0.4E.6 i don't remove bin pdbedit off this version.
No i use the new pdbedit from /usr/local/samba/bin then i see all users creating.
