[SLE] printer loss [susepro 9.1]


I still have not been able to resolve the print problem I have been
having. I believe it is probably a combination of the susepro 9.1 and
samba 3.0.9-2.6-suse interactions as the two systems on the lan have had
the same problem of losing their printer and then not being able to
regenerate them.
I tried to access cups via //localhost:631/ with no success.

I have tried a number of approaches: upgraded kde to v3.4; taken the
unit out of the lan but nothing works so I am hoping somebody out there
will have suggestion[s] which will solve the problem.

Following is a copy of the /var/log/cups/errorlog:

Can someone tell me what the last line means? It seems to me to have the key?

Thanks for your input.

Re: profiles reverting from local to roaming


I don't know if you resolved this yet but I have the same thing on Centos 
which uses the same version of samba. pdbedit won't change the profile
nor will changes in smb.conf so I
added the 'sambaSamAccount' attribute 'sambaProfilePath' with "" as the 
for the user I was testing.  now 'pdbedit -Lv user' shows the profile path 
changed to ""
which 'should' turn it off. [??]
I only get the error 'cannot save the profile' once in a while [usually the 
users 1st logon]
so it may re-appear for me if I'm wrong here.
 I have no 'profiles' share on my server yet. Just testing.
BYW...did you disable it in smbldap.conf before you populated the ldap??
I had it enabled there and now it seems to be the default for all users new 
and old.

SSO for Windows Clients

The idea is to setup a samba server (LDAP backend) as the PDC for
Windows XP/2000 clients. The main problem we see is enabling SSO for
their Windows Applications such as Outlook, File Sharing Services (an
another samba server or 2000 server).

Do we setup OpenExchange to allow SSO? Or is it possible to use
Samba/LDAP and Kerberize IMAP to allow this? How do we then tell the
client, Microsoft Outlook, that SSO is in place?

NTLM-Auth Problem

Good Morning.

For my vpn Server, i'm using a winbindd and NTLM Based Authentication setup against my AD.

Recently, as a new User was added, i found this:

The User can't log in using ntlm_auth at all, getting rejected because of "No Such user". On the windows
Side, the user works just fine, and other users can use ntlm_auth fine.

Heres my smb.conf on the vpn server (only winbindd and nmbd are started)

Samba version 3.0.14a-Debian (Distro should be clear to by that :))

rom-linux:~# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

I should need time to test, which of course I haven't :-)

the syntax user <at> is the w2k dns based naming scheme whereas the
domain\user is the old netbios one. both should work but with some
third-party tools which don't understand dns naming.

Explorer is a much more funny thing to handle
I got it from m$ support : you just can't run explorer as runas with
another user, officially it conflicts with the desktop explorer instance.
but the following works : open a dos command prompt window, start the task
manager, kill explorer : your desktop disappears. then run explorer from

samba-3.0.20rc1 winbind Windows 2003 SP1 ADS wbinfo all fine, but getent passsd or group does not work...


I've joined a Suse 9.1 Pro linux computer to a Windows 2003 SP1 ADS using:
# kinit Administrator <at> DOMAIN
# net ads join

The computer account is created on the DC and wbinfo (-t -u -g) all
work. Then I try getent passwd or getent group and nothing.

This is with:
