    Arnaud Forster replied to a discussion, Add photo to the profile

    Hello Nick,
    Thanks for your message. Yes it could be a solution. Someone in the school made an Office 365 application to be used by the students to upload their pic using their smartphone but it has been refused by our government because of the Personal Data Protection Law.
    So we have to found a solution to collec their photo using the computers inside the school. As I've a clearOS system with all students, I had the idea to allow them to connect to their profile and store their photo somwhere.
    But I can ask them to login on our school computer and save a photo into their personnal folder, yes. I'll have then to make a script to collect all pictures of all personnal folders, rename them using the user id of their LDAP account .. why not.
    I was thinking about an existing tool to do that but I dont know if .. it exists ;)

    Add photo to the profile

    Hello all,
    I've a clearos to manage the students of our school. We'd like now that the students can import a photo linked to their profile (to create student identity cards).

    Is there a way to do that, maybe an addon ?
    Thanks to all for your help
    Kind Regards to all
    Arnaud

  • Dear Nick,
    Thanks for the enquiry.
    This is not the the same system as the one with the pre-defined groups which are not working.
    I think this is a general problem because we tried with different accounts on different systems (MAC OS and Windows) . We can connect to the ClearoOS Webconsole without any problem.
    I will try to see if that system has the same pre-defined group problems ...
    Thanks for your help :)

  • Samba request a password change before accessing my home folder

    Hello all,

    We configured a ClearOS system for your teachers/students with a LDAP server and windows samba domain.
    Each user has a personnal folder.

    The problem I've is that wen I'm trying to access my personnal folder \\my_clearOS_server\my_personnal_folder, a windows on my computer comes to request a username/password. Till there, no problem. So I give my username/password and then, samba request that I change my password before accessing (cf pic)

    Is there a way to avoid samba requesting for that change ?
    thanks to all for your help

    Hello Nick,
    I've now another system with that problem ...

    I made some tests and it seems that this happens on computers connected to the NT4 domain. I tried to connect to a flexshare with my personnal computer : a username / password has been requested and I could open my flexshare. With a computer connected to the domain and the same account ; I coudln't open my flexshare ...
    Still making some tests ...
    Thanks for your help

    ok, thank you :)
    Yes, it seems that the groups that are created by me are not recognized.
    For the while, I found a workaround adding the user into the flexshare.conf file ... hopefully I just have a few users to add ;)

    Hello Nick,
    Thanks for your help. Yes, this exactly the same behaviour you wrote :



    [root@srv-cos ~]# wbinfo --group-info='administration'
    failed to call wbcGetgrnam: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
    Could not get info for group administration





    is an update created this problem ?
