Re: [Samba] Using GPO to mount shares on Linux




Hai, 

I commented below. 

P.s. @Rowland, i dont believe this is a sssd problem but a old bug in samba.

Sorry, i made a typo in my question, what i mean is, do make use of that smb.conf
Or put put your settings in the smb.conf. Even if you dont have samba installed.
Smbclient = samba and looks for smb.conf, just saying it may help.

Thanks, i've been reading it, thanks, your solution is a mix of both howtos i think.
But sssd is not my cookie..

Ok, good to see you did check a lot already. 

Now, this part..

I do remember something about that..  I've seen that before.. 
I might be something with the pc connecting to samba and samba keeping a lock on something.
I just cant find it where i did read this. Must be on the list some time ago. 

Then i suggest, for the 4.2 for jessie since you cant upgrade, have a look at my apt.
apt.van-belle.nl and use the latest 4.5.x or the backported version from stretch.

Did you ever give thought on XenServer (https://xenserver.org)
I use Xen (Debian) Hypervisors also in the past, i switched to xenserver.
Also free to use, and has some nice features. 
I see the debian Xen is the same, why i did choose to drop debian Xen. 
The security issues and boot issues..   :-( 

And your sure you Xen Host is not balloning out. 
(possible fix for that. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen/+bug/1484682/comments/3 ) 

For a xen hypervisor, i would suggest ubuntu ( arg, yes i did say that, and i even dont like ubuntu..) ;-) 
I use Ubuntu for kodi only at home, but if you use the debian/ubuntu xen-hypervisors, then go for ubuntu. 
Because it more focues on that for companies.
