I am having problems getting Samba to authenticate AD users to Samba shares. Since I need to get our file server back online I think I will just run Samba as a standalone server. The problem with that is I have a AD domain so I have some concerns. First off can Samba serve files to users that are part of a domain without the Samba server having to join the domain?
I'm trying to configure a Samba server to simply use LDAP backend for authenticate users. Just that, I don't care of PDC/BDC, etc.
The samba schema is present in the LDAP, and in the users profile. And this server is already used by an another Samba server which is probably a PDC. But, I don't have write access to the LDAP or the samba server. I can only read de LDAP entries.
