Greetings,

I have Power Broker Open installed on my LinuxLite machine for AD authentication.  When I go into User Manager, the Groups Menu ends with the group "List".  I am sure there are more after that but I can't get to them.  Any suggestions?

Does the User Manager show the full list of groups when you are not connected to the Domain?

No it does not. It shows standard and domain groups/functions up to "List" then stops.

That's unusual that it would show a group like eg. 'domain^users' as shown in your first screenshot when you are not connected to the Domain.

Go to Menu, type 'user' and click on Users and Groups. See if that tool helps.

I've looked at "users and groups" app, logged in as the domain admin, and I see all the Linux "built -in" groups, no domain groups and the only user in the drop down is the "machine" administrator account. I don't see any of the domain users (as I do in user manager).  Any ideas why user manager stops at list?

No idea sorry, our app that has not been tested with AD. Do you need to add yourself to a specific group?

Well, the main issue arise when trying to allow an AD authenticated user with local machine administrator privileges.  In "Users and Groups" I get an error when trying to "add" and AD user.  In User Manager I can't go down to add a AD user (which I can see) to the Sudo group because it stops at List.  I did use the command line to add my AD admin (admin) to the Sudo group.

That said, it's a bit of a pain to have to do that with each user from command line.  Hopefully, this make some sense.

As an AD admin excited to use Linux -Lite, it would be nice to have an app/daemon that would add dependencies on install, and have a test user/group interface.  maybe dreaming but, it would make the transition much easier.

Have a look around the internet, do some in-depth searching, see if you can find what you're looking for.

Hi,

Maybe irrelevant or off topic..??
When I first started using Linux inc Linux Lite(my only OS now) I had real issues to get named services(?) running so I could just use PC names to/from Linux <> Windows.
Long story short, I now on every install/re-install do the following.(some of this maybe uneccessary, but I have yet to have issues)

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install system-config-samba cifs-utils libnss-winbind winbind gvfs-backendsThen:
Code: [Select]
gksu leafpad /etc/samba/smb.confAdd/Check or Modify the following
   name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins
   local master = no
Then:
Code: [Select]
gksu leafpad /etc/nsswitch.confThen change the line:
   hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
To this:
   hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] wins dns
Then re-boot
