Well folks I added the //idmap gid/ = 10000-20000 and ///idmap uid/ = 10000-20000 as per the documentation and well guest what !!!

IT STILL doesn't work.

The more I read this thread the more I figure that Suse pushed this version 9.1 out the door just to keep everyone happy.

Tried that, no difference, although I after I did put the infor in control center, I did not need winbind anymore. Now when I access datacenter, I put in the logion and password, the URL bar shows smb://art_fore@datacenter/ but comes with with datacenter protocol died unexpectedly. Also can no longer join the domain with samba client.

I would like to see someone who has this working put the following info on the mail list so I and others who have not gotten it to work could compare setups. Following info should be inclued:

1. Is network controled by Active Domain controler or not, or is the server a standalone computer with shares enabled.

2. Is samba server being used?

3. Is Samba client being used?

4. Is Kerbos being used?

5. Is PAM being used?

6. What steps did you go through to get system operating?

7. Do you have password entried in the /etc/sdamba/smbpasswd file?

This kind of info would help what appears to be alot of people having problems with samba?

Hi Art,

Well Winbind wasn't installed so I installed throught Yast. Then when I tried to enable the service it told me that etc/smb.conf was not configured.

Installed Samba server and now get the following error : Internal Error - Please send a full bug report at Unknown error condition in stat: Network is unreachable...

Well this version of Suse 9.1 Pro sucks so far !!

Not really so.

Check in /etc/samba/smb.conf that you have workgroup = your_domain_name

Also, go to KDE Control Center, Internet & Network, Local Network Browsing and input your Windows domain username.
