[vbox-dev] single signon problem
linux problems
2014-09-18 12:50:05 UTC
Request help with following problem that has been troubling me since a
I have a CentOS ver 6.3 server as Host OS. On top of it I have a Virtualbox on
which Guest OS Windows 2012 VM has been running. I want to set up a single
sign-in in a way in which I sign-in to Windows Server using terminal
clients (Ncomputing L300) but data of each user should be stored on CentOS
host directories and not within VM.

I am able to join the domain on Windows 2012, I am able to do single sign
on when I create user in Windows AD. User also gets access to Host OS
(CentOS) shared folder but I am facing following problems:

1) Everyday when server starts in morning, I need to rejoin the domain with

*"net join ads -U Administrator -S name.domain.extention"*

it prompts for password and if given it joins the domain successfully and I
need to restart the winbind services with command

*"service winbind restart"*

I want to get rid of these command entering routine.

2) The users I create can login to Windows 2012 AD, but their home
directory is not getting created automatically in CentOS host, unless I
first physically sign on directly on CentOS.

I want the folders to be created automatically as we create default user
folder path in Windows Server.

3) My folders like Desktop, My Documents, Favourites, Profile (folder
redirection for roaming profiles) are not getting redirected on user's
shared folder on CentOS host.

I need the folder to automatically reside on CentOS host directory

I am attaching smb.conf, krb5.conf, hosts files.

Need urgent help. I am not a Linux Pro / Expert so please pardon
my naivety. Thank you in advance.
