Description

When you want to add a machine to your domain you will have to do this using a few commands. It would be really easy when you can add a machine automaticly or using the amahi desktop.

Can you detail the commands you need to manually run to add a machine?

Why rejected?

@tbiesaart Is that your way of saying you do not know?

I think this is a good idea!

We just need to know how to do it!

It may not be too bad to spec this out, according to JJ :)

#5 Updated by Lincee over 10 years ago

first we need amahi to automaticly create a a linux group called machines.
this can be done when the platform installer executes "groupadd machines"

then we need to edit amahi so that the smb.conf created by amahi places the following line under the [GLOBAL] section:
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g machines -c "%u machine account" -d /var/lib/samba -s /bin/false %u

once this is complete, samba dynamicly adds a machine name once it finds that the connecting machine has no trust yet.
