I have a CentOS 5 box that is joined to a genuine Windows domain
controller and users can easily log into that box with their AD
credentials. I configured the Linux box' native config files
(smb.conf, krb conf files, etc) instead of using a third-party app.
Logins work fine.
I visit the smb.conf file to try and create an smb share of a mounted
volume, and I get prompted for credentials. No matter what I enter, I
cannot gain access.
I use my Windows box to select Start > Run \\server\share and get challenged.
The same is true from my Mac with CMD-k.
The Samba logs show string_to_sid: Sid my_ad_username does not start with 'S-'.
No amount of googling has found an answer, only many people with the same issue.
The box was recently updated via yum update -y, so all packages are up-to-date.
Any help/insights appreciated.
