Windows Authentication for CentOS login

Post by rickiez » 2005/03/05 14:25:51

I have joined my centos system to my windows 2003 domain by getting a kerberos ticket and joining the AD domain. When I issue "getent passwd" it lists my AD users. When I issue "getent group" it lists my AD groups. I can assign file/folder permissions to AD users/groups, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to allow an AD user to log on to the system at the console. I've tried the following syntax:

mydomain/ADusername
mydomain+ADusername
ADusername
MYDOMAIN/ADusername
MYDOMAIN+ADusername

any/all thoughts suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Have you tried:

MYDOMAIN\ADusername (note the backslash)

Yes I did. But I have to list it as DOMAIN\\User or it treats it as DOMAINUser. I think I may have to go back to fedora....that seemed to be less buggy..........Ironic huh?

Did you join the domain using net ads join?

Make sure winbind is running, as well as samba.

Make sure your /etc/nsswitch.conf has
passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind

Does wbinfo -u work?
