    Default [SOLVED] Missing Samba Group after following Tutorial

    Hi All,

    We followed Gregs Tutorial with a bit of success and are able to authenticate against Zimbra.

    We're now trying to join machines to the domain but are coming undone around about....

    "Next, create “Domain Admins” group using Zimbra Admin UI, on Samba tab select Special Windows group type “Domain Admins”."

    We don't have domain admins available on our Posix Accounts Zimlet. I'm not sure which step we stuffed up, probably importing the samba.schema file from 3.0.28 but if anyone could let us know which part of the process creates this "Samba Group" option for posix accounts it would be most helpful.

    Thanks :-)

    Hi,
    you can use the smbldap-tools package, which will create all samba groups with proper GIDs. Works very good for me. You can than add your posix groups with zimbra admin console.

    When you create a Posix group, there should be (in that window) a 2nd tab for the Samba group stuff... so when you create a Posix group, you create a corresponding Samba group at the same time. You have to select the Domain before you get the opton of a "special windows group"

    Default I hear you, can't see it

    Excatly what I'm missing is the Samba Group. At what stage in the tutorial does this get created. At one stage we had it but failed back due to some libnss-ldap issues on Ubuntu.. when we re-ran the tutorial we ended up without the samba group option. How do I re-create?

    I looked at smbldap-tools but would prefer to stay within the tutorial and not add another level of complication..

    Default Samba admin extension?

    Do you have the Samba admin extension/zimlet installed? Check that first...

    Default Sorted... sort of

    After trawling a bit more I found this forum post

    Samba Group...?

    It appears that as we didn't use dc=hostname,dc=domain,dc=com but used dc=domain,dc=com in the config_template.xml file we didn't end up seeing the samba group created.

    However, when we did used the hostname in the config file we ended up with all kinds of errors, so we removed it then tried again with dc=domain,dc=com and finally have the samba Groups tab available. But... now it seems that all our existing groups and users are missing the object class extensions we need as per this forum post modify existing user to have Samba attributes

    We're going to delete and re-create all the groups now that we can assign appropriate sambaSID and group type then update existing users to get the appropraite objectClass.
