This question relates to SAMBA version 4 when used as an Active Directory Domain Controller.
I have everything set up to allow domain users to log in to Linux. However, I have been searching for ages and cannot find how to set a users home directory and shell. I am just getting
/bin/false at the moment. I have
libpam-winbind all installed and working - I can log in but the
/bin/false shell isn't exactly useful!
I know how to edit the
idmap.ldb, e.g. to set a user's UID, and I can edit the
sam.ldb also for other attributes. I have ADUC on a Windows box joined to the Samba domain and that works too. I have tried the
template homedir and
template shell in the
smb.conf but nothing has so far worked.
I hope I have missed somethig really simple and the answer is obvious, but I am suffering from Google Blindless after much time spent searching for the answer. Even the Samba docs fall short here.
