Joining a Redhat Linux 9 workstation to a Windows 2003 AD Domain

Hi guys,
Hope you can help.

What Id like to know is how to join a linux box to a 2003 AD domain.

This is what I have so far.....

Smbpasswd -j DOMAIN -r PDC -U DOMAINADMINUSERNAME

Then you supply the password for the domain admin user.
You have to enable encrypted passwords first.

Is this all that is required?

I thought you might have to create a computer account in AD as well for the linux box?
Is this a required step?
Do you have to do both eg.the smbpassword, edit the smb.conf and create a computer account in AD?

Thanks in advance

Simon

As far as I know, Active Directory support is only available in Samba 3 so you need to make sure that Samba 3 is running.  Also Active Directory support is still under development.  The last time I checked, you have to make sure that you are using LDAP/Kerberos authentication on both sides (I don't believe Windows enables it by default) and you may also have to turn on some kind of legacy mode.  A good guide can be found at: http://us3.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/unixclients.html#adssdm.

Good luck
