  • RPC Server Unavailable - Using Templates w/ Hyena 6.6B

    I am trying to create and set permissions on home directories for existing users using Hyena 6.6B. Many of the users do not have home directories set.

    I have created a template that matches what I want the home directory settings to look like and when I choose it, I receive "Unable to lookup account on server holycross for account Administrators. The RPC server is unavailable."

    I cannot figure out why this doesn't work. I have tried this using Hyena on my XP SP2 workstation and I've even installed Hyena on a domain controller and it still occurs.

    Template Name: Default
    New Home Directory Mask: \\domain\files\users\%username%
    Drive: U:

    Home Directory (NTFS) Security Settings:
    domain\%username% Change
    domain\Admininstrators Full

    - Overwrite existing directory security
    - Verify before overwriting existing security

    - Set the ownership to be the Administrators group

    - Inherit all security settings from parent

    I cannot seem to figure out why this is happening. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

    A couple of things from your post:

    New Home Directory Mask: \\domain\files\users\%username%

    This should be \\server rather than \\domain, with server being the computer you want your home directories on.

    Home Directory (NTFS) Security Settings:
    domain\Admininstrators Full

    Administrators is mispelled here. I don't know if that is just in this post, but if you have it that way in your template it will cause problems.
