I have a Samba 3 server running as my domain controller and want to
configure it to authenticate user passwords off a MIT KDC server that
is already up and running. I have the KDC client software installed on
the Samba box and it will authenticate users using it's tools.
I have been looking for some sort of a how-to but I have not found
anything that works or explains much very well. Most of them
give rough examples on how to connect to a Windows ADS but that's not
what I'm doing. I would appreicate it if anyone here
knows of a working how-to on setting up this configuration. Currently
my smb.conf contains the following lines (among others).
realm = REALMNAME.COM
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
When I try to connect to the samba server the smbd kicks out the error :
check_ntdomain_security: could not fetch trust account password for
From what I have read this relates to Samba not being 'connected' to
the ADS realm (which I do not have). I have however
attempted the command net ads join which returns various errors.
