Hi all, I am on the road to successfully moving my CVSNT repositories from a win2000 machine to a linux server. My aim is not to have to do any password/user account maintenance and just leave that to our IT department. I have setup samba/winbind authentication sucessfully so that users can use their normal windows domain passwords and the :sspi: protocol. To get it to work I have had to manually create a home directory for the users that I want to allow access to cvs. My question is, is it possible to configure smb.conf so that users can be authenticated by the Primary Domain Controller without needing to have a home directory on the linux server? If so a pointer or two as to how would be nice. Cheers Mikew.
