I have samba (not PCLinuxOS) running as a PDC in an NT4-type domain and have been authenticating users and PCLinuxOS boxes into it using Windows authentication.
I have also enabled logins using cached credentials when I am away from the domain.
Everything was working just fine until I ran an update yesterday, including samba updates which I think overwrote something. Now, I can no longer authenticate using cached credentials.
I believe I have all of the necessary settings. In /etc/samba/smb.conf , I have the line:
winbind offline logon = yes
In /etc/security/pam_winbind.conf , I have the line:
cached_login = yes
But, in the absence of the domain controller, login of samba users fails and I get the following error in /var/log/messages :
Oct 5 05:35:59 <hostname> gdm-binary: WARNING: Couldn't authenticate user
Is there a setting somewhere that I have overlooked?
