Samba HowTo Guide

Configure smb.conf

You must use at least the following three options in smb.conf:

realm = your.kerberos.REALM
security = ADS
# The following parameter need only be specified if present.
# The default setting if not present is Yes.
encrypt passwords = yes

In case samba cannot correctly identify the appropriate ADS server using the realm name, use the password server option in smb.conf:

password server = your.kerberos.server

The most common reason for which Samba may not be able to locate the ADS domain controller is a consequence of sites maintaining some DNS servers on UNIX systems without regard for the DNS requirements of the ADS infrastructure. There is no harm in specifying a preferred ADS domain controller using the password server .
