Hello, I have a question that I was wondering if someone could help me
with. I am an admin at RIT and we have a large network base of Sun
machines. We do authentication via NIS over NFS. We are about to
receive a full lab of Windows boxes and need to set up a samba server to
serve users' home directories to the Windows boxes. This initial
configuration is relatively easy, but we want to use NIS for access
control and password authentication. Access control is simple via NIS
netgroups, but everything I've turned up for authentication via NIS has
just regarded password syncing. Is anyone aware of a method of forcing
Samba to use the NIS system for password authentication instead of it's
smbpasswd file? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
