I have used it and find it much easier than configuring kerberos and samba. Though likewise edits smb.conf in turn.

Checked the Review. Seems promising !!
But the link http://www.likewise.com/products/lik..._platforms.php speaks of not supporting Solaris x86 32 bit and Opensolaris too.
Otherwise Good Stuff we can rely upon.

Likewise is used to join the Linux machines to AD domain. But because it authenticates with AD, I guess it should be possible. Just like a windows machine outside the domain would be asked to provide domain credentials for accessing the resources.

If you want to use domain resources, say a shared folder, on a system that is not the part of the domain, you will be asked to provide domain credentials to access it in a pop up windows.
So, I am guessing likewise could be used in a similar way to pass domain credentials for accessing resources or authenticating domain users. And I am guessing this because to join Linux machine to a windows domain, you need to pass domain credentials as well.

I have used likewise for joining machines to domain but never for the purpose you are wanting. And thats why I said I am guessing it should work.

If you want to use Likewise, then just install it and then add your server to your company domain. It should automatically be configured to authenticate in your domain.
If you want to do it manually, then the best way is to configure kerberos and samba.
You should be able to use ntlm authentication.
