we have integrated our samba service in a Windows active directory
domain. Everything running fine.
Now I want to understand the authentification process. What happens when
a Windows client maps a network drive from the samba server?
Does the Windwos client send its kerberos ticket to the samba server or
does it send the username and password to the samba server and the samba
server creates a kerberos ticket. Does it make any difference if the
Windows client is part of the domain or if it is not part of the domain.
Does anyone know a book, aritcle or website where I can find out more
about this?
