I am trying to setup samba so that it uses the password from my AD instead of having a password file in SAMBA.


I think I have the samab.cnf file setup correctly:



        workgroup = hshh;
        security = DOMAIN
        auth methods = ntdomain
        password server = ttndc3
        max xmit = 65535
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
        ldap ssl = no
        oplocks = No

Can somebody tell me what I have to do on the windows 2003 side to make

this work. I am guessing I have to setup a samaba acct in AD but not to sure. Can somebody please verify and maybe send me a screen print.


In addition, let me know if I have do anything else on the UNIX end (AIX 5.3).


Thanks in advance to all who respond
