[Samba] Accessing Samba Shares from Windows

In our case the company police rules don't allow us to join non Windows
machines to our domain.


Just don't figure out why Samba 2.2.8a is working with our DC and Samba 3.x
is not.


Thank you very much!

So after I will recompile Samba with MIT Kerberos will it work without
actually joining the machine into active directory. The Samba 2.2.8a are
working this way.


Still don't figure out why samba 3.x are not working. Could be that the
older Samba was compiled using Kerberos? I will check this.


Hmmm, I don't know about that, sorry. I misread your initial email. As far
as I know (and I don't know very much about how samba interracts with AD,
I'm sorry) Samba can't authenticate against an AD without actually joining
it to the domain. So I'm quite surprised to hear that that Samba 2.2.8a is
managing it, but don't know how it works. I just happened to know that
Solaris didn't have the kerberos abilities built in.


Is joining samba to the AD so awful?


Thank you!


No troubles. I'm happy to pass on what little information I have.
