Word and samba

Greetings Group

I think the Word crashing problem is quite common and does not confine 
itself to Samba as PDC. Running Word with any file open on a Samba server 
seems to invite trouble and file trashing.

This seems to more of a problem with Win2000 and XP than Win9X and NT. I 
suspect that Micorsoft have "improved" the code to "optimise" performance 
for Micorsoft servers...

In my particular case we have found that "no oplocks" reduces the rate of 
file trashing...but am not sure if this totally fixes the problem yet. A 
very worrying syndrome for us Linux adminz.

Advice on Microsoft word = send it back to Gates, (and you don't have to go 
to UniSex to know that is good advice). The more you struggle against this 
advice, the more work you make for yourself and the more money you give to 
Bill. Tell your superiors that if they must have f*#king Microsoft products 
on the net then perhaps they would like to f*#king fix them too.

Years of long experience - Microsloth does not get any better with 
time..... ;0)

Re: W2k logon

After setting a user up on W2k and the samba 2.2.7a PDC a profiles
directory on the PDC is created with the proper perm, but windows
reports that the profile cannot be loaded. The W2k machine is connected
to the network and to the domain. My administrator account is allowed to
log on however. The Log files do not show any errors. Any help is
appreciated.

samba + mit krb5 + ldap hypothetical


Hi all,
I've read through much of the list archives and other various docs and
am now more confused than ever regarding how samba interacts with
external services. All of the docs seem to assume that a Windows AD
server is part of the picture when ldap/krb5 are involved.

What I'm trying to do is set up a samba fileserver that Windows clients
can connect to via something like:

"net use h: \\sambaserver\myhomedir /user:user123 pw123"

Assume:
a) "sambaserver" is the name of my fileserver where the disk space is
located, but it doesn't have any actual user accounts on it other than
root, etc.

b) "user123" is a valid person within a ldap directory which does contain
valid information for the posixAccount objectclass (the same information
that would normally be seen in /etc/passwd including their uid, gid,
homedir path, but doesn't contain their actual password).

c) "user123" is also a valid prinicpal within a MIT krb5 realm and "pw123"
is their krb5 realm password.

d) "user123" isn't relevant at all on the windows client side of things
(there's no AD server or centralized Windows administration) so I'm not
trying to join the samba server to a Windows AD domain or use any
preexisting Windows account info.
