LINUX integration with W2K AD

Hi all,

I'm looking to authenticate users from a W2K Native Mode AD domain on RedHat servers. I think that you can do this using winbind and Samba but there are no great HOWTOs. . .

Is there any way to integrate RedHat Linux boxes into a Windows domain? We are implimenting some major applictions on these Linux servers and we want to be able to pull Auth and Admin privledges. . . Basically the corp has decided that AD is the repository of userid's.

So can we set up Linux to use W2K AD?

Your info would be greatly appriciated.

Hello, i am also trying that as of now.
We also encountered the same problem. In our case we are using Gnome Display Manager. you have to edit /etc/pam.d/gnome (if you are using GDM) so that it can authenticate users through pam_winbind.

If you are using KDE, i think there is also another file for KDE under pam.d. you have to edit it to use winbind.

hope this helps.

good luck
