Authenticating user logins against active directory
I've been wrestling with this for a couple days.
I'm trying to get a Fedora machine to allow logins against the active directory accounts.
It's a pretty simple network we have here.
We have one Win2k DC, and the DC also holds some shares that contain user files.
We don't even have anything fancy like "true" roving profiles. Users usually just save their work on the local machines, and if they want to have it backed up, they ship it up to the shares on the DC.
What I want:
Let's say there's an account "weegan" on the DC,
And there's no such account on this fedora box.
I want to be able to punch in the login "weegan," and have access to the network shares that I have
permission to access on the windows DC.
It seems like it should be easy. But i've been having no luck, and it's taking way too long.
