Guide to joining a Windows Domain
Right, I can use Likewise to join a domain no problem, but I'd like to use Samba so I can mount windows server shares - so for example my N: drive, on windows I'd just map \\server\myDir and the jobs done.
So if it's samba, I figure Winbind is the answer. I have a few guides for doing this and indeed have done it in the past with no problems, but it all seems geared to servers with static ips. This is a client on dhcp - I need is as part of a proof that a *nix distro such as Ubuntu could be a viable alternative to the inaffordable (at least with our budget!) Windows 7.
It's early days so if no-one has a guide or some notes I can pinch, I'll just keep tinkering and maybe post my problems!
Thanks in advance

Ok, I have followed a guide and joined a domain with Smaba and Winbind - all worked perfectly (anyone whos interested let me know if you want a copy of the guide I followed). Now my troubles continue...
When I have joined a windows domain with likewise, I have immediately been able to log in as a domain user i.e: DOMAIN\Tyiell. Wierdly though, this time with Samba and Winbind I cannot. I get all the correct responses from the wbinfo -t/-u/-g commands, nad the machine has appeared in AD no problem, but when I try to log in with a domain account, I'm given "Autentication Failure". I can't su to my domain account in terminal either.
Anyone know what this might be?

I used a similar one on HowToForge.com. Doesn't seem to be much different, I can't work out whether I've screwed something up so that it does get wbinfo but can't log in with a domain account, or whether there's another step that everyone forgets to mention!!

have you added something like this
to the etc/group file?
where ActiveDirectoryUser is the username of the person you want to have access?

I hadn't, but I had added the Domain Admins OU to the sudeors file - as I see it that should do the same thing. I'll try it anyway though, I'm running out of ideas!!
