Samba Authentication Methods

Somebody please help...

I've read so many things about this, all of which contradict each other, and none of them work.

I have a Samba 3 server for filesharing, and I have a 2000 SP4 Active directory (In native mode) domain. The windows domain has all of the users.

All I want to do is be able to login to the fileserver, from a windows box, without having enter a username/password. A.K.A I don't want to have to maintain 2 seperate accounts for each user.

I can get Kerberos to talk between the AD and Linux, and winbind works, because I can see the users & groups by doing wbinfo -u / -g. But samba/linux won't recognize the users.

Plz, if anyone has any references or walkthroughs of good documentation on how to set this up, I would greatly appreciate it.

What I have previously done is configured samba, configured kerberos, and configured nsswitch.conf.

Thank you in advance,

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Instead of posting the more or less identical issue
11 times ... why don't you do some research?
