Samba HowTo Guide
Prev Home Next

Introduction

This section describes the procedures used to get Winbind up and running. Winbind is capable of providing access and authentication control for Windows Domain users through an NT or Windows 200x PDC for regular services, such as telnet and ftp, as well for Samba services.

  • Why should I do this?

    This allows the Samba administrator to rely on the authentication mechanisms on the Windows NT/200x PDC for the authentication of domain members. Windows NT/200x users no longer need to have separate accounts on the Samba server.

  • Who should be reading this document?

    This document is designed for system administrators. If you are implementing Samba on a file server and wish to (fairly easily) integrate existing Windows NT/200x users from your PDC onto the Samba server, this document is for you.
