RHEL 4 authenticate to NT domain?


Hi, I'm running RHEL 4 AS at my workplace. It's a multi boot system with Win XP and 2 other RHEL (thanks again to those who helped get me up and running!).

So, here's my latest issue... at work, my windows system authenticates to an NT domain, let's call it dom.work.com

Also, an automatic config. script is used eg. http://auto-proxyort

So, for my Win XP setup, I just assign my computer name, use the "Network ID" wizard and provide the domain name and my login name & password, then I specify the automatic config. script url in my browser's lan settings and I'm online.

On the Linux side, I'm thinking I need to use Winbind? Am I headed in the right direction?

Here's what I've done to try and configure it:

I go to "Applications->System Settings->Authentication"
When the "Authentication Configuration" panel comes up, I did this (I entered the same settings on the "User Information" and "Authentication" tabs):
1.) Checked "Enable Winbind Support"
2.) Click "Configure Winbind" and entered the following:
Code:
         Winbind Domain: dom.work.com
         Security Model: domain
         Winbind ADS Realm
         Winbind Domain Controllers
         Template Shell: /bin/false
3.) Click OK
* When I click "Join Domain", it asks for a Domain Administrator username and password. Do I need to have the "Domain Admin" user/pass to set this up? Or am I totally off the mark here?

Thanks for reading this and for any help!!!

Paul

Thanks for the reply!

This kind of leaves me with the same question I had before. When I type "net ads join -UAdministrator", I am asked for a password. I don't know what password it's looking for here. Is this command enabling me to attempt to authenticate to the domain? I also tried it using "net ads join -Umy-user-name" and I get the same result:
Code:
utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(186)
  ads_connect: No such file or directory

I would assume it was the administrator password for the domain. I dont really have a whole lot of experince in adding these to a Windows domain so I'm guessing here. There are a lot of docs on there that will tell you how to config the samba.conf in order for it to see the domain. After that its beyond me

Thanks ninjaz.

I am running this system in a corporate environment so, I do not have access to the actual domain system, nor do I have an administrator account on that system.

Does anyone else know if there is anyway for me to authenticate to this domain and gain internet access (my ultimate goal)? I'm not even sure if Winbind/Samba is what I need to be configuring/playing with.
