Joining a Redhat Linux 9 workstation to a Windows 2003 AD Domain
Posted on 2004-09-07
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
