I have set up UBUNTU Server on an HP-Proliant. Idea is a simple SMB-File Server setup with restricted User rights in a mixed Win/Lin/OSx LAN
To achieve this I thought out a domain setup with samba. Due to lag of proper DVD-drive we used the mini-iso for install.
Although I have followed a huge amount of man-pages and the samba is running ( i can see the shares) I do fail to register clients to the domain or handle the access rights.
Windows User Rights are not able to access the server, lifting them into the winnt domain on Ubuntu fails.
All documentation I found is old and does only apply partially so I wonder if there is actually a full step-by-step guide that applies to the recent Ubuntu server revision and packages. ???
Due to my limited linux server knowledge I am depending on man-guides to achieve my stuff.THus I am pretty frustrated with not getting where I want to be
