Samba as a member of an NT Domain


Please can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on how to make a Samba server (running version 2.28) join an NT domain?

Thanks
Milton

I'm not sure entirely of what you mean by "join an NT domain" but essentially all you need to do is edit smb.conf (once you've installed samba) and add the name of your NT domain to the line marked:

workgroup =

Other than telling you how to build samba from scratch, that's all I think you'd need to do. There may be another couple of bits to configure (passwords, ids etc...) but that's the main part for NT interaction.

There are loads of HOWTO's on the web, try:

http://www.samba.org

for a good starting place.

Then on the samba machine run 'smbpasswd -a <user>' for each client that will access files on the samba server. Of course, at this point you haven't shared anything so you'll have to set up your shares before going much farther.
