    Censornet

    I'm trying to setup censornet 3.3 but having problems trying to pull user & group info offn my windows (2k3 R2 SP2) domain

    The above info is correct but it wont play ball

    It found all my workstations fine and that they were running VNC

    Im running in Ethernet Bridge mode if that helps.

    Make sure your LDAP path is the right way round and the administrator account is in the default users container.

    Re: Censornet

    @plexer - timezone is correct as far as i can tell (Europe/London) but also tried GMT to no avail

    @ChrisH - LDAP is in reverse as it states (Pupils/Users/School)
    Admin user is in the Users container

    No joy

    I will have a look when I get back to work but there was something that tripped me up last time I did a new install. I shall try to remember what it was when I get back.

    Re: Censornet

    Hmm cant find anything.
    I have
    DC IP address
    Domain FQDN
    Users
    limitedusers (my top level OU for pupil/staff accounts) maybe it was a problem with a nested OU that I had?

    administrator

    Try pulling users from a top level OU if you ahvent already done. It doesnt help with sorting into groups but it maybe a start.

    Re: Censornet

    Still not getting anywhere with this. It only seems to be a problem with obtaining user lists from AD

    U can get all the PC's on the LAN

    I can open a shell can connect to AD using pam_auth

    Have tried various different levels of my OU's (from the root - Moorside, to the lowest 'Year 07/Pupils/Users/Moorside'

    I have the admin Container set as Users and the admin account inside it - though it's renamed from Administrator (could this be a problem?) the IP, FQDN, Username & Password are all correct..

    Yet still get the "coud not connect to DC" error..

    Re: Censornet

    Have you tried leaving the Users OU bit blank? Should catch every user on the system.
