In Ubuntu 12.10, at the login screen, I enter my user name and password. It accepts my credentials, the screen clears, and the login screen shows up again asking for my credentials once again. It is a constant loop.
I can, however, login remotely via PuTTY.
I have attempted fixing the issue in recovery mode, to no avail.
The issue started happening after a recent install of Kerberos and reconfiguring Samba to authenticate with the Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain.
I have attempted purging Samba and reinstalling, that did not fix my problem. I am at a loss, and I also am not an IT professional. My boss, wanted to avoid spending money and threw this task upon me.
Here is the portion of my Samba file that deals with the configuration:
[global] ## Browsing/Identification ### # Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of workgroup = CABLETEST_NEW #password server = WINDOWSSERVER wins server = 192.168.1.201 realm = CABLETEST.NEW.COM security = ads template shell = /bin/bash winbind use default domain = false winbind offline logon = false winbind separator = + #allow trusted domain = Yes #deadtime = 10
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is my auth.log:
