I am setting up Samba 3.0 on a RedHat ES 3.0 machine (Intel h/w). I want
to try to get
Samba authenticating with Active Directory and am somewhat confused by all
installation/config doc out there.
I have the Kerb 5 software installed on my machine as well as the LDAP
software that is suggested.
My questions are these:
1) Is Kerberos REQUIRED for me to get Samba authenticating in a W2K
or is it just a good idea from a security standpoint?
If required, what is a good source for quick-start
installation/config? I have found a bunch of
Kerberos howto doc, but it looks rather involved. What would be
the quickest way
to get Kerberos going?
2) What other steps do I need to get this whole thing authenticating?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Dean Obry
