[Samba] Using GPO to mount shares on Linux

I'm using sssd because works fine, is the first time I join a domain with a
Linux box and I need an easy and fast guide to make it work. SSSD allow me
to cache the use credentials and autofs mounts, so if domain fails the
computer will work without problem.

Finally is a problem of spn. I've opened the ADSI editor and I've added the
CIFS name to the list of SPN in shares server and now works fine. Both ways
works fine (autofs and smbclient).

Thanks to your comment about SPN (I didn't know what is), I've known where
to search and a simple way to solve it.

Can I suggest to add this spn when a Linux member joins the domain?,
because maybe give problems on other builds that use kerberos to mount

Hi Louis, I never said this was a sssd problem, I just cannot see how
you can fix a potential Samba problem when the OP isn't using much of
He is using 'samba-common samba-common-bin samba-libs'. These, by
themselves, don't do much, but when coupled with something else, they
help the 'something else' to work.
In this instance the 'something else' is 'sssd' and 'sssd-tools' and
these are not Samba packages, so, in my opinion, the OP will get better
help from the sssd-users mailing list.

If it turns out to be a Samba problem, then we can try to help the OP
to fix it, but a sssd problem has to be ruled out first, mainly because
sssd is the main component in use here.

I also cannot really understand why the OP is using sssd, when it is
just as easy to use Samba instead (by the way, do you think the OP is
aware that he is using the sssd version of winbind ?)
