File Sharing in a Windows Domain
I was doing a little project for work, we have a Linux box laying around and I thought I'd make it a file server since we could use another one. Now I know my way around Linux a bit but I've never configured Samba to be used in a Domain, just in a LAN and with local authorization.
Now we have an Active Directory server running under Win Server 2008, and what I'm trying to do is to have like a Share folder under my Linux box, where certain groups can enter certain directories. I have 9.10 installed, not the server cause it wasn't ment to be a server, just a simple testing and monitoring machine, and I was trying to follow the guide posted on how to forge:
But I always get a DNS update fail error, I changed my hosts file to point to my domain server and it kinda worked: I could access it like a share folder, but it asked for an user and a password, I tried entering several users from the domain and it didn't worked.
The guide says I need to have everything setup for the server, it asumes perharps that one is running Ubuntu server and perhaps I'm missing something. On a bright note I could authenticate myself with Kerberos and create a ticket successfully.
Has anyone succeeded in doing this that perhaps can give me a hand?
Thanks for your time.
