XigmaNAS as a file server for Active Directory

#1

Post by TheDude69 » 13 Aug 2019 13:55

Hello World,

I have successfully installed the latest version of XigmaNAS on a test system. Now I want to setup a file server service. Therefore I have activated AD and SMB/CIFS and configured it with the necessary options using a manual found with Google:

https://www.rmtechteam.com/blog/xigmana ... ded-setup/

But I am still not able to browse the NAS. I have tried \\<IP-Address> and also \\xigmanas but my Windows client is not able to find the server. But I am able to ping the IP address and also the name.

Under Diagnostics->Information-> MS Active Directory I see the following:
Result of testjoin: Environment LOGNAME is not defined. Trying anonymous access. Join to domain 'XYZ' is not valid: NT_STATUS_CANT_ACCESS_DOMAIN_INFO

Winbindd Availability: Could not ping winbindd! Ping to winbindd failed!

Trust Account Status: could not obtain winbind interface details: WBC_ERR_WINBIND_NOT_AVAILABLE. Could not obtain winbind domain name! Failed to call wbcCheckTrustCredentials: WBC_ERR_WINBIND_NOT_AVAILABLE. Could not check secret checking the trust secret for domain (null) via RPC calls failed.
But I can see all users from domain imported correctly.

Has anyone an idea what's going wrong here? Or has anyone a walkthrough for me, please? I have also walked through the manual pages but with the same result.

Many thanks in advance,
best regards

TheDude

Update:

Found one issue: The AD object name of the NAS must exist in AD first before doing the AD config in XigmaNAS. Now I can access the share but XigmaNAS is asking me for credentials. :shock: No idea, what to type in here.

Update:

I can access the XigmaNAS Server by typing \\<ServerName> into the explorer of my Windows 10 and using credentials for the admin user of the XigmaNAS server (admin). After that I can see my test share.

But when trying to change permissions to the share like taking ownership to my AD user access ist still denied. Has anyone an idea where I have made a mistake in my configuration?
