Samba HowTo Guide

If you have a Samba configuration file that you are currently using, BACK IT UP! If your system already uses PAM, back up the /etc/pam.d directory contents! If you haven't already made a boot disk, MAKE ONE NOW!

Messing with the PAM configuration files can make it nearly impossible to log in to your machine. That's why you want to be able to boot back into your machine in single-user mode and restore your /etc/pam.d to the original state it was in if you get frustrated with the way things are going.

The latest version of Samba-3 includes a functioning winbindd daemon. Please refer to the main Samba Web page, or better yet, your closest Samba mirror site for instructions on downloading the source code.

To allow domain users the ability to access Samba shares and files, as well as potentially other services provided by your Samba machine, PAM must be set up properly on your machine. In order to compile the Winbind modules, you should have at least the PAM development libraries installed on your system. Please refer to the PAM Web site
