Mickey-Soft authentication.

I am sure Microsoft will release the code needed to port DC authentication from a non Mickey-Soft OS any day now.. Until then, I don't know that it has been done!

About the only way to do this is through LDAP, and that will only work if Active Directory is running in the Windoze domain. Since AD is essentially LDAP you can use it for authentication on Linux.

I found an article on how to do this through a quick search on Google.

when i gave the command,
net join -w <domain_name> -S <server_name> -U<admin_accoount>%<admin_password>,
to my linux box with samba 3, it showed me the msg. 'Joined <domain_name>'.
What does that mean? do i get to see the userlist on that domain? if yes, how do u do that?
My PDC is a NT server.
