Need help adding a Solaris 10 zfs server to active directory for user authentication


I am trying to build a new file server of Solaris 10 and zfs . The problem I am currently having is in adding the server to our active directory domain for authentication of users. My co-workers and I have tried several approaches and all have failed (most likely because we are unix n00bs). We need a set of setup instructions for dummies if at all possible.

Thank you,

Have you considered using OpenSolaris? OpenSolaris has quite a few interoperability fixes that have not yet made it into Solaris 10. Not all OpenSolaris features are backported to Solaris 10, so there may be some that will never make it into Solaris 10.

The NS_LDAP_BINDDN parameter doesn't look right to me. All of the setups I have seen used a proxydn and cn=proxyuser.
