I'm using Samba 3.0.10-1.4E.6 that came with CentOS 4.3 (fresh install)
and Active Directory is running on windows 2003 SP1.
I've been following instructions of the chapter 6 of the HOWTO and would
like to validate the work I did.
First I modified smb.conf:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2006/05/24 23:51:58
# Global parameters
workgroup = MONTREAL
realm = CASTORTECH.COM
interfaces = eth0
security = ADS
wins server = 192.168.64.20
password server = castor-srvr1
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = Test
path = /
read only = No
I didn't modify the krb5.conf file since what was inside was OK. Then I
ran kinit Administrator at CASTORTECH.COM and entered the password. No
error message, it just returned to the prompt. I assume that it worked.
The first time I did get a clock skew error, but I corrected it.
Then I ran net ads join -U Administrator%password. It told me:
Using short domain name -- MONTREAL
Joined 'VLB2' to realm 'CASTORTECH.COM'
So far so good. I can see it in ADUC\Computers.
I think that I'm pretty close but I'm not sure what to do next. I want
that share to be available to anyone on their Windows machine using
their Windows login.
If I try to access \\vlb2, it asks for a username and then gives me an
access denied message is I use MONTREAL\user.
Thanks for the help,
