Authenticating Debian Server, Kubuntu, and Windows XP With Active Directory
- We were tasked with creating an Active Directory domain with Windows Server 2003 and then having a mixed environment all authenticating into the same user domain. The mix of opperating systems that were used in this project were Debian, Kubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn), Samba running on Debian Server and Windows XP. The project consisted of setting up a Windows 2003 Server with Active Directorty and Samba so that the Linux Cients could authenticate into the same domain. We also had one Windows XP client that authenticated into the shard domain as well. We ran Samba on Debian Server and had shared directories set up that all clients could view. We used PAM for the Linux clients to allow them to connect and authenticate with a mixed doamin. The following Wiki will detail what was used and done to make this project a reality.
