I would recommend to do so. That will make it much easier for users to access that share.
Or is there a reason not to do so?
Can you post your smb.conf?
Yes. It is not joined to the domain that the users are in. The reason for this is that there is an web application that deals with LDAP authentication and talks to Active Directory. Whenever we have joined the server to the domain the application goes really strange with the authentication and it's pot luck as to whether users can login or not. Keeping it off the domain and letting the application do all the authentication work irons everything out and it is a lot smoother.
Since the server is mainly just for the web application we decided that it would be best to leave it off the domain, as the only other thing we need to access from it are the logfiles...hence my asking this question.
