Topic "Cannot connect to Server without group admin rights"

Author Message


Hi, all,

my problem is as follows:
I use OpenSSH on a Windows 2003 Server in a windows domain. If I create the password file with mkpasswd, the created user becoms the group membership of a local group "none" (pe. id 513, found in the group file). This local group dosn't exist on my server. But, the user can login via winscp and the transmitted files have the owner group "none". If I change the group membership via text editor into another local user group, the user cannot login.
If I create a domain user account in the passwd file and try to connect, I become the message : "Server unexpectedly closed network connection". If I change the group membership of the domain user into lokal admin group in the /etc/passwd file, then I can login and the group membership of the transmitted file is "local administrators".

Can anyone help?
