I have a new Samba install, but it is using a config file from a previous installation of samba. This one is 3.5.6
The following is an excerpt from the config:
[global] workgroup = hum domain logons = Yes domain master = Yes local master = Yes os level = 65 preferred master = Yes security = user
So it is a pdc, has domain name "HUM". When a user logs into the domain, their profile (created locally) has the name c:\users\[username].ZEN
"zen" is the hostname. I can happily log into the domain, and I can add machines without problems. In all cases, I refer to the domain as "HUM".
If I log into a W7 workstation as an administrator, and add a user to the administrators group, it correctly lists the user as "username" in domain "HUM".
If I then log in as that domain user (again logging into the HUM domain), I do appear to have administrator rights - I can for example run cmd as administrator.
However, weird things happen. The account cannot run control panel for example - access denied (windows cannot access the file or device). If I go to netplwiz I can see that the user in the administrators group that was previously "userid" in domain "HUM" is now "userid" in domain "ZEN".
zen is the hostname of the samba controller.
This happens on both workstations I have tried. I am wondering if the workstations previously logged into the HUM domain on a different server (it was rebuilt) and are getting messed up now they join to the same domain on the new server.
Any troubleshooting tips welcome...
