Shalom,

Change security=domain

Restart the samba deamon

net join

You will need a windows administrator password to join the domain.

Re: Samba Configuration on HP-UX 11i

run /opt/samba/bin/samba_setup for a guided configuration , it is pretty much straight forward and easy

If you want to use Kerberos, then you need to sync up some configuration files. Use this whitepaper and just follow the directions and smb.conf example in chapter 4:

http://docs.hp.com/en/14985/HPCIFSKerberosV105.pdf

If you want to learn how to use the Windows 2003DC to store both your HP-UX ID and your Windows IDs (you need both for CIFS/Samba), then use this whitepaper (with smb.conf examples):

http://docs.hp.com/en/16322/CIFSUnifiedLoginV2.pdf

Review: With CIFS/Samba on HP-UX, the Windows DC will *authenticate* a user logon, but the HP-UX system needs a local user to "authorize" a user to access files and directories. You can configure CIFS/Samba to authorize with "username.map" (simplest), "winbind" (easy to set up, hard to maintain), or Unified Login (hard to set up, easy to maintain).

Shalom VB,

From the Unix system.

net join

You set security=domain in the smb.conf file and you as root run the net join command and will then be prompted for a Windows Administrator password.

Then wala, chef of the future the Unix system is integrated in the domain.

Document version.

http://docs.hp.com/en/5990-5133/index.html

As the windows domain administrator all you have to do is hand out the password.

Re: Samba Configuration on HP-UX 11i

Oh and the log files are in /var/opt/samba in case someone wondering. Hope this helps.
