    UNIX Authenicating NOT Windows 2K Server

    Locked

    by tbwolfe ·

    Have just implement an Windows 2000 Server w/Active Directory making it a domain controller. The problem is that now the workstations are authenicating to it instead of the UNIX server where all of the print drive mappings are configured. How do we make the UNIX sever the Master Browser that authenicates the users and not the WIndows 2000 Server?

      I assume you are using Samba on the unix server.
      Try the following in your smb.conf file:
      local master = yes
      domain master = yes
      os level = 40
      preferred master = yes

      Setting these in the global preferences section should ensure that the unixserver is the master. You could also make the os level higher if necessary.
