I did not use Kerberos yet, my configuration is very simple.
Do you think I should use it ?
What is windbind offline mode ? If I understand well is more a client
than a server feature, right ?
I join the domain with:
#> net rpc join -S myserver.mydomain -U Administrator%password
and my smb.conf is:
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
server string = File server for Office 2
encrypt passwords = true
password server = myserver.mydomain
netbios name = office2_fs
security = DOMAIN
show add printer wizard = No
idmap uid = 15000-20000
idmap gid = 15000-20000
winbind separator = +
winbind use default domain = Yes
winbind cache time = 3600
use sendfile = Yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
enhanced browsing = No
client schannel = no
local master = No
domain master = No
load printers = yes
