Samba authentication

Hi,

I have a Linux server where Samba is configured. One of the Windows client is using the exported directory by typing Unix login name and password. Due to security restriction, I have been asked to implement Windows Integrated authentication in Samba. Could someone tell me how it can be done or if any documents, etc.

TIA

Re: Samba authentication

Hi Shahul,

Yes it can be done, however the configuration steps will vary depending on how your Windows domain is set up.

You're probably best off reading the docs here:

Cheers,

Re: Samba authentication

When setting up our Samba environment the O'Reilly Samba book was priceless for me.

There were different requirements depending on if you were using Samba as a DC or not. There were also different registry settings depending on the OS used to access the Samba shares.

All the info is available but not easily documented when advising an unknown environment.

Shalom,

This document is the best right now.

I'm doing this right now and it can be tough sledding.
