Did you try anything besides switching the user? For instance:
- Did you check the event log?
Yes, did not find anything useful.
- Did you check /var/run/sshd.log? If it's empty it's probably
the domain user has no write permission.
No, I did not.
- Does the domain user have an entry in the local /etc/passwd? sshd
needs that when checking file ownership. And it allows to
user to cygrunsrv without the "domain\win_username" syntax.
Well, there is an entry for a user of the same name. Is that enough
or is there a way to specify the fact that it's a domain user?
- Did you chown /etc/ssh* and /var/empty to the domain user when
to start the service under that account? That's a must have.
No, I did not know about this either. I will try these suggestions
as soon as I get a chance, but that might not be until I return to
the office next week. A quick question, though. Instead of making
all these changes, is there a better way to (re-)install Cygwin sshd
so that it is properly set up for a domain user?
