Hi, all,


I am having trouble figuring out how to log on to a Samba 4 AD DC using
any AD domain account.  Has anyone had success doing this?  If so, is
there a guide somewhere? 


I have stood up a Samba 4 Active Directory Domain Controller on a Red
Hat 6.3 system, and it appears to be functioning correctly.  I have a
Windows 7 workstation, a Windows 2008R2 storage server, and two other
Red Hat servers (running Samba 3.6.9) joined to the domain, and I can
log in to all the systems except the DC using domain accounts.  How do I
configure the AD DC to allow login?


So far I've tried following the guidance in the Red Hat "Integrating Red
Hat Enterprise 6 with Active Directory
ng-red-hat-enterprise-linux-6-with-active-directory> ", the Samba wiki's
pages "Local user management and authentication/sssd
on/sssd> " and "Local user management and authentication/nslcd
on/nslcd> ".  I've tried following the Samba wiki page "Samba 4/Winbind
<https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba4/Winbind> ".  None of them have


Thanks for any help you can offer.
