Ive asked this question several times but have not gotten an answer, can
anyone give me any clues or tell me where to read about this please?!
I noticed when trying to use a windows active directory server for my
"password server" that i cannot join the windows AD domain (using the net
join command) unless the windows server has "anonymous access enabled".
Why is this? I am trying to join as "administrator" so why does it need
My windows admins want to change all the windows AD servers to disable
so my question is:
how can i get samba to use windows AD with anonymous access disabled?
why does samba need anonymous access?
im running solaris 8 and samba 3.0.7.
here is the error i get when anonymous access is turned off:
/usr/local/samba/lib# net join -w MYDOMAIN.com -S WINSERVER3 -U
Unable to join domain FSA.
here is my smb.conf:
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
wins support = Yes
hosts allow = all
encrypt passwords = Yes
unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
update encrypted = No
lm announce = true
log level = 2
# for AD passwords
# password server = *
password server = WINSERVER1 WINSERVER2
security = domain
path = /export
comment = export
browseable = yes
writable = yes
read only = No
public = No
