#1 Updated by Lincee about 12 years ago

PDC works stable so far, we only need to fix the profiles problem.
Roaming profiles isnt working yet.

Here is a proposed logon script from Ignasi (logon.bat):

# Sync Windows clock with Samba clock
net time /set /yes
# Mount a samba share into x:
net use m: \\hda\movies /persistent:no
net use u: \\hda\music /persistent:no

not sure yet what line needs to be in the smb.conf and where to create this logon.bat file. will ask.

here is how to automatically add machines:

add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 501 -s /bin/false -M %u

where group 501 is the group for the machines. we need to figure which is the best group for that.
perhaps nobody (99)? or create a new one?

#3 Updated by Lincee about 12 years ago

ok, we have it all working now, roaming profiles is working, so is domain joining.
see the wiki for updated info!

#4 Updated by cpg about 12 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed

this has been released.

the only issue with it is that it requires users to join a pcd by loggging in as root and also creating a samba user for root. not great, but an acceptable solution until we take it to the next step.
