Members of Domain Admin using CentOS Directory Server as backend do not have Admin rights in Windows Server 2008. I have joined the domain, see that the users are populated, and can login using LDAP accounts. But, member from Domain Admins do not have Admin rights.

My smb.conf


workgroup = DOMAIN
netbios name = COMPUTERNAME
name resolver order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
time server = yes
interfaces = lo eth0 
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0.
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
enable privileges = yes
security = user
passdb backend = ldapsam
ldap admin dn = uid=admin, ou=Administrators, ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot
ldap delete dn = yes
ldap suffix = dc=DOMAIN, dc=local
ldap user suffix= ou=groups, ou=auto.home
ldap machine suffix= ou=Computers, ou=auto.home
ldap group suffix = ou=groups, ou=auto.home
ldap idmap suffix = ou=idmap, ou=auto.home
idmap backend = ldap:ldap://
idmap alloc backend = ldap:ldap://
ldap ssl = start tls
encrypt passwords = true
#add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Computers -s /bin/false %m$
ldap password sync = yes
idmap config DOMAIN:range = 800-500000
idmap config DOMAIN:ldap_url = ldap://
idmap config DOMAIN:ldap_user_dn = uid=admin, ou=Administrators, ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot
idmap config DOMAIN:ldap_base_dn = ou=idmap,ou=auto.home, dc=DOMAIN,dc=local
idmap config DOMAIN:default = yes
idmap config DOMAIN:readonly = no
idmap config DOMAIN:backend = ldap
idmap alloc config:range = 800-500000
idmap alloc config:ldap_url = ldap://
idmap alloc config:ldap_user_dn = uid=admin, ou=Administrators, ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot
idmap alloc config:ldap_base_dn = ou=idmap,ou=auto.home, dc=DOMAIN,dc=local
logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
logon home = \\%L\%U\profiles
    #logon drive = H:
ldapsam:editposix = yes
ldapsam:trusted = yes
idmap uid = 800-500000
idmap gid = 800-500000

This is the output from net groupmap list:

#net groupmap list
   Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-2832048597-2870066976-2120398464-512) -> Domain Admins

   Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-2832048597-2870066976-2120398464-514) -> nobody
   Administrators (S-1-5-21-2832048597-2870066976-2120398464-1007) -> admins
   Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> Administrators
   Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> Account Operators
   Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> Print Operators
   Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> Backup Operators
   Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> Replicators

pdbedit shows the user Administrator with the right SID (ending in 500).

I have granted rights to the Domain Admins group using documentation from Samba: http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/rights.html.

What else should I do?

Edit: Groups in Windows.

Edit2: Groups from Linux

[username@computername samba]$ id -Gn
Domain Users Domain Admins Administrators 

Edit3: genent group 512

[username@computername sambas]# getent group 512
Domain Admins:*:512:username,Administrator,username2
  • When logged onto the Windows 2008 server, what groups do the users appear in? – Andy Smith Nov 15 '11 at 16:04
  • Okay. It doesn't look like your user is in any DomainName groups at all, or am I missing something?! – Andy Smith Nov 15 '11 at 16:16
  • I edited my question to show groups from Linux. The username in question, is a member of Domain Admins. If I go to Computer Management-> Groups->Administrators, I can manually add this user as Administrator and all groups are shown if I click on Find Now. – rchhe Nov 15 '11 at 16:27
  • Yeah, I can see - the weird thing is that is does look like the user is added to any domain groups from the Windows 2008 server's point of view - which is presumably where the problem lies! – Andy Smith Nov 15 '11 at 16:30
  • What does getent group 512 show? – Andrew Nov 16 '11 at 5:56
