I swear that the hardest thing to setup under Linux (at least for me ) has been samba. Running Linux RedHat 6.1 & have a windows 98 se machine. I see the Linux machine when i go into Network Neighbourhood & when i click on it i get the password box but it ALWAYS fails. The message i am getting at the moment is this
[2001/04/08 04:02:05, 0] smbd/server.c:sig_hup(340) Got SIGHUP [2001/04/09 00:18:04, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1213) domain_client_validate: no challenge done - password failed [2001/04/09 00:18:05, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1213) domain_client_validate: no challenge done - password failed [2001/04/09 00:18:09, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1213) domain_client_validate: no challenge done - password failed [2001/04/09 00:18:10, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1213) domain_client_validate: no challenge done - password failed
What i would truley like is to setup Linux as a domain controller so when booting the windows machine validation is done via the Linux machine by verifying against the password file or smbpasswd file & so then u have access to shares at that point. Does it have to be WinNT to get this to work. I know their is the issue with encrypted passwords. Currently my Linux machine is set to yes Regards...
[Andrew Higgs] Hi Andrew,
It is very possible to have Win 95 and 98 logon to a Samba domain. I assume you have read the relevant docs which come with Samba.
Have you added a Samba user to correspond with the one (your windows username) you are trying to use. It seems to me that it is failing because the username (and consequently the password) is not there. Try 'smbpasswd -a username' also 'man smbpasswd' for further details. Also bear in mind that Win 95 (and I assume 98) don't let you specify a username when trying to login to the Samba server, they just use your windows username.
I hope this is sorts out your problem.
[JimD] I was just reading about the Samba 2.2.0 release at http://www.samba.org/samba/samba.html. The Samba team is continuing to strive towards full domain controller and "MS Active Directory" functionality. You should look at the new release and read every shred of documentation. Linux/Samba as a domain controller is still cutting edge (sometimes brushing against the cutting edge leaves us dripping a bit of blood).
You'll especially want to read the PDC HOWTO documentation at your nearest mirror of the Samba web site: http://www.samba.org Just follow the "Documentation" link and look for the FAQs and HOWTOs under the "New PDC Documentation" heading.
There are Samba mailing lists and discussion of Samba predominates the discussion on the news:comp.protocols.smb newsgroup. If you have a connection to a good NNTP server you can post your questions to a forum where hundreds of Samba users and specialists can see it.
Also, no tech support suggestions for Samba would be complete if we didn't point you to the Samba DIAGNOSIS guide. You can see that at: http://WWW.samba.org/samba/docs/DIAGNOSIS.html (where WWW can be www or the names of one of the many samba mirrors).
