Do you want to add a new user to Linux? Just explain it little more that what you want.

I have created windows domain user called loftware. I want this user to access a shared directory on an RHEL server and be able to read and write from this RHEL shared directory.

Lots of online tutorials are available for samba server setup. You can setup samba and do share files between Windows and Linux.

You didn't give any info about your RHEL samba configuration or your Windows domain, and it'll be hard for anyone to help you without that.

Assuming your Windows clients are in a Windows Active Directory domain, I think your samba server on RHEL needs to be a member of the windows domain in order to accept logins in the domain\username format. That is, you'll need to specify SECURITY = ADS, and authentication will actually be done by your Windows domain controller.

I've never worked with a samba server in a Windows domain environment, so I doubt I can help you much, but I think you'll need a kerberos realm, openLDAP, and winbind setup on RHEL to do that. From what I can see, it's not trivial to set it all up.
