Have I got this right. You want to prevent them from logging on to a particular pc without a username and password?
If the server is off the domain is not active to validate requests for authentication.
It might help me understand what you are trying to do if you tell me why you want this computer isolated as the solution I am thinking about may not be the right one. Is it in a public area or do you want to prevent guest users or some other reason.
Look forward to your next posting.

    There is a group policy setting

    Client computer>computer config>windows settings>security settings>local policies>security options>

    either interactive logon: do not require ctrl+alt+delete disable

    or interactive logon: require domain controller authentication enable

    but not sure if it fits your problem just yet.

    You could put this computer in its own OU and apply the policy to it. You will have to use a fresh policy with its own name though to do this.

Change User Password from Command Prompt


You can change a Windows User Account password that is on any Windows computer from any other Windows computer regardless of whether the User Account is on a workstation, a stand-alone server, or a Windows domain controller. Additionally, it makes no difference whether the password being changed from a workstation, a stand-alone server, or a Windows domain controller. This is true for any NT 4.0, W2K, XP Pro and Windows Server 2003 computer.
To change a user's password at the command prompt, log on as an administrator and type:

net user danielp * /domain
(This is only an example, use your own username)
When you are prompted to type a password for the user, type the new password, not the existing password. After you type the new password, the system prompts you to retype the password to confirm. The password is now changed.
Alternatively, you can type the following command:

net user danielp 123456 /domain
When you do so, the password changes without prompting you again. This command also enables you to change passwords in a batch file.
Note: If you type these commands on a member server or workstation and you don't add the /domain switch, the command will be performed on the local SAM and NOT on the DC SAM.

User profile cannot be loaded on Windows domain-based network


The only way i found to stop it was to copy the profiles to a new spot and then delete the user and then remake the user and log in as the user and then log out and then copy the setting back to the user replacing the files.

If your not the administrator of the domain, contact the domain administrator, only he can give you the
relavent permissions.

Our WIN 2003 server is down and has been sent for repairs and only one user can no more log onto the domain while others still can work. The built-in administrator and domain administrator can still logon...


have you got a replacement server or member servers that are doing the other roles whilst the other server is sent off for repairs ?

Are the users logging in locally into the computers or what exactly ?

If the first then create another account in AD for the user to temporarily use ( you can use robocopy utility with the robocopy gui )

robocopy gui here

windows resource kit which includes robocopy here

Then you can copy there data from there existing home area to there new home area ( which will duplicate it for a while ) so that they still have access to there data.

If its a local account they are using then obviously just create another account on the computer they use

Logon issue in a domain trust - Win 2003


Are you logging in through terminal services? If so you need to give the user "allow logon through terminal services" permission in group policy.

Otherwise you need to give the user "allow logon locally" permission on the domain controller.

Domain\administrator has no local admin rights


You may need to edit group policy if this was once in a domain. You may want to try rebooting the machine and logging into the 'LOCAL' machine and see if you have rights that way. Each machine by default has one administrator account but if the server was part of a domain, that right may have been removed. You may need to reset OWNER privileges for all files in the machine.

How to configure samba server


Hi satveergaur

Follow these instruction to configure samba server

To configure Samba using a graphical interface, use the Samba Server Configuration Tool.

The Samba Server Configuration Tool is a graphical interface for managing Samba shares, users, and basic server settings. It modifies the configuration files in the /etc/samba/ directory. Any changes to these files not made using the application are preserved.

To use this application, you must be running the X Window System, have root privileges, and have the redhat-config-samba RPM package installed. To start the Samba Server Configuration Tool from the desktop, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings => Server Settings => Samba or type the command redhat-config-samba at a shell prompt (for example, in an XTerm or a GNOME terminal).



 Samba Server Configuration Tool



Note
The Samba Server Configuration Tool does not display shared printers or the default stanza that allows users to view their own home directories on the Samba server.

 Configuring Server Settings

The first step in configuring a Samba server is to configure the basic settings for the server and a few security options. After starting the application, select Preferences => Server Settings from the pulldown menu. The Basic tab is displayed as shown in Figure 24-2.



 Configuring Basic Server Settings

On the Basic tab, specify which workgroup the computer should be in as well as a brief description of the computer. They correspond to the workgroup and server string options in smb.conf.



 Configuring Security Server Settings

The Security tab contains the following options:


Authentication Mode — This corresponds to the security option. Select one of the following types of authentication.


ADS — The Samba server acts as a domain member in an Active Directory Domain (ADS) realm. For this option, Kerberos must be installed and configured on the server, and Samba must become a member of the ADS realm using the net utility, which is part of the samba-client package. Refer to the net man page for details. This option does not configure Samba to be an ADS Controller.

Domain — The Samba server relies on a Windows NT Primary or Backup Domain Controller to verify the user. The server passes the username and password to the Controller and waits for it to return. Specify the NetBIOS name of the Primary or Backup Domain Controller in the Authentication Server field.

The Encrypted Passwords option must be set to Yes if this is selected.

Server — The Samba server tries to verify the username and password combination by passing them to another Samba server. If it can not, the server tries to verify using the user authentication mode. Specify the NetBIOS name of the other Samba server in the Authentication Server field.

Share — Samba users do not have to enter a username and password combination on a per Samba server basis. They are not prompted for a username and password until they try to connect to a specific shared directory from a Samba server.

User — (Default) Samba users must provide a valid username and password on a per Samba server basis. Select this option if you want the Windows Username option to work. Refer to Section 24.2.1.2 Managing Samba Users for details.

Encrypt Passwords — This option must be enabled if the clients are connecting from a Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3, or other more recent versions of Microsoft Windows. The passwords are transfered between the server and the client in an encrypted format instead of in as a plain-text word that can be intercepted. This corresponds to the encrypted passwords option. Refer to Section 24.2.3 Encrypted Passwords for more information about encrypted Samba passwords.

Guest Account — When users or guest users log into a Samba server, they must be mapped to a valid user on the server. Select one of the existing usernames on the system to be the guest Samba account. When guests logs in to the Samba server, they have the same privileges as this user. This corresponds to the guest account option.

After clicking OK, the changes are written to the configuration file and the daemon is restart; thus, the changes take effect immediately.

 Managing Samba Users

The Samba Server Configuration Tool requires that an existing user account be active on the system acting as the Samba server before a Samba user can be added. The Samba user is associated with the existing user account.


To add a Samba user, select Preferences => Samba Users from the pulldown menu, and click the Add User button. On the Create New Samba User window select a Unix Username from the list of existing users on the local system.

If the user has a different username on a Windows machine and will be logging into the Samba server from the Windows machine, specify that Windows username in the Windows Username field. The Authentication Mode on the Security tab of the Server Settings preferences must be set to User for this option to work.

Also configure a Samba Password for the Samba User and confirm the Samba Password by typing it again. Even if you select to use encrypted passwords for Samba, it is recommended that the Samba passwords for all users are different from their system passwords.

To edit an existing user, select the user from the list, and click Edit User. To delete an existing Samba user, select the user, and click the Delete User button. Deleting a Samba user does not delete the associated system user account.

The users are modified immediately after clicking the OK button.

Starting and Stopping the Server

On the server that is sharing directories via Samba, the smb service must be running.

View the status of the Samba daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb status


Start the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb start


Stop the daemon with the following command: /sbin/service smb stop


To start the smb service at boot time, use the command: /sbin/chkconfig --level 345 smb on

Problem


When you install a server operating system at that time it will ask you that how many maximum clients you want to attach this server so by default its 10 ,that means you can attach maximum of 10 clients , you can increase or decrease the no of computer you want.

Firstly you have to decide whether to add clients in workgroup mode or Domin mode..in domain mode you have the centralised management on the computer .so select domain level mode .
now to make clients either you can make 5 user in active directory user and computer.
1:Go to Administrative tools > Select Active Directory Users and computers > Select user on the left side > right click on that and select new user > now follow on screen instruction to make a user > now make other 4 user also in the same mannner.Now when you are logged on with local user on the clients select my computer > right click and Select properties > select my computer tab >now click change button to make client work with domain type only domain name for eg if your domain is contoso.com ,> type their only contoso > now a box will appear asking you for administrator and password enter domain controller pc password ,it will ask you to restart > after restart user can login at the client computer...
Or:

just login with local user at client computer Right click my computer > and do the same procedure ,after restarting you can login with your server name administrator and password .

Logging on to server


You need to go into administrative tools and look for group policy.

In the local computer policy
Computer Configuration
Windows Settings > security settings > Local policies > user rights assignment. In the right hand pane find the policy for "Allow log on locally" Set the user accounts for those users which are allowed to log on interactively on the server. Be careful you dont lock the administrator account out.
Use in conjunction with the "Deny logon locally policy" if you need to.
Hope this helps
