Can opensuse 10.1 authenticate active directory just like SLED10?


Dear good hacker,

Somebody successfully authenticate active directory using Suse 10.1 just like SLED10?

After install opensuse10.1, I join successfuly into windows active directory via:-
yast->nework services->windows domain membership

few testing show me that it's work.

After restart, during login I can't see the option to choose what domain to login (or local) just like SLED. Then I install the kdm, set kdm as default display manager, reboot.
Now I can see option for choose domain, but the ailable option only 'local'.

Somebody have any ideal how to carry on?

Regards,
Ks

Im no real help here, but I can remember that there was some real trouble in AD authentication in SUSE10.1 / SLED10.

It worked as it should, but after a reboot the login to domain-option was unavailable or the password wouldn't be accepted.

I needed to login as root. Logout and then the gdm(kdm?) presented me an option to login to domain.

There might be some kind of problem with samba starting itself too late in the boot process (runlevel problem maybe?).

For myself using SLED10 I able to login AD network successfully, during login seems kdm appear automatically all sub-domain I have (thrust relationship) and <local>. As a long time windows & linux user, I'm very supprise this feature. And I'd sucessfully login domain account offline too with the cache credentials function.

However my laptop battery sensor (acer aspire 1680) only work for Ubuntu and I don't want to change and recompile the kernel. So I hope some advance user able to teach me the pam_ccreds+winbind so my laptop can login domain offline.

For those of you who still can't authenticate AD in SUSE10 you should consider Likewise 2, SUSE10 is a supported distro and they have automatic configuration (including single sign-on). This is especially important for those of you who upgrade Samba and have all of those lovely errors. Tell me what you think.

Seems like it allow Linux authenticate via active directory, however It didn't state that allow cache credentials (Offline login) for active directory.
