I would like to set up a Samba3 PDC on an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS box for Windows XP and Windows 7 Clients. For my application I do not really need the whole profile overhead a normal Windows domain network has. I would much rather like to control one single profile per Operating System, which all users use to login, that is unchangeable by them (mandatory?). It should only be changeable by administrative users for configuration.
For your information I planned to do the software deployment with WPKG and store the users in an OpenLDAP Directory Service.
How do I best accomplish this single profile configuration with Samba, if even possible, or what is a valid alternative to it?
I had several problems with access rights and barely got it to work unstablely with Windows XP Clients. Windows 7 Clients are still an enigma, especially because say seem to be a bit stricter with the access rights needed in a profile.
