Hi there good people.
I have a problem here, and I can't hink of a solution for it.
We have a segment with about 50 "powerusers" that each have their own little test setup.
Now the problem is that now and again some gimp decides to try out those nice settings in smb.conf.. What happens next is that
they will manage to make their box take over as domain admin, and our PDC/BDC (NT urgh!) will be knocked out. Then no one can
log in as the samba box isn't at all set up as a domain controller, but rather a MP3 server for one user.
What I was looking for is some way of monitoring this with Linux (as I don't really like NT, and I don't like to sit in the
server room staring at NT logs waiting for someone to do this.).
I want to monitor this segment, and if this happens then do sometihng about it (at the very least just mail me the ip address,
and I can kick the muppet myself.)
AFAIK samba can't do this, but if someone has any idea on how to get something like this done, please let me know.
Bear in mind that we have no SNMP, and are running with static ip's.
