The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 849
Samba 3.0.0-2 Domain Member File Server User Home Directory Access
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:30:50 UTC
I am running RHL 8.0 (Psyche) with Samba 3.0.0-2 as a domain member. I migrated
from Samba 2.2.7. Users are being authenticated from a Windows 2000 domain.
Users can access specified samba shares with the exception of their home
directory. When a user attempts to connect to their home directory share from
Windows the dreaded "Enter Network Password" box appears."Incorrect password or
unknown username for:" Connect at: Pasword:. If I enter the users name and
password the box just reappears again.
On Samba 2.2.7 I had it configured perfectly so that when a new user connected
to the file server a home directory was automatically created using PAM. The
user had complete access to specified samba shares along with their home directory.
After migrating to Samba 3.0.0-2 most of the functionality worked with the
exception of users having access to their newly created home directory.
Winbindd is working properly cause I can query the user and group database
(wbinfo -u, wbinfo -g, getent passwd). Samba appears to be authenticating
properly. I believe the problem lies in the PAM configuration.
Since Samba 3.x is so new I was not able to find any information to help me
resolve this. I checked the PAM website, checked user group forums, and the
O'reilly Using Samba book to no avail.
I will be rolling back to Samba 2.2.7 until we can resolve the issue. Please
help. Thank you for reading.
Is the problem with all home directories? Do you have
valid users = %S
This was broken in 3.0.0 but has been fixed in 3.0.1pre1
no feedback. Assuming the bug was fixed post 3.0.0
originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
