I'm just installed Red Hat Enterprise on my network. Any idea how to integrate my existing AD domain such that same users and password could be used to access the Linux, together with access the shared folder on Window from Red Hat.

I'm new to Red Hat so it would be greater to have step by step guide on this.

Thanks

Numerous technologies are used to do that.
You may need Kerberos as well.

That quick start guide is for Linux in general; it should work with RH 6, too.

RHEL6 has a completely reworked autthentication and authorization layer. The guys at RedHat have created sssd. A dropin replacement for nscd and most (if not all) remote authenticators.

SSSD can be configured to talk to AD realms: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/chap-SSSD_User_Guide-Configuring_Domains.html. A normal AD coupled configuration would use the ldap/krb5 combination configs.

The answer to the questions you put is in that documentation. You WILL have to read it though. The options and pitfalls are numerous, you really want to understand  what you are doing and there is little point in repeating the documentation here. :)

Go through the material but couldn't get exactly how to make it work. Sorry for that.

I will strict to Red Hat 5.0 as we have a server installed with this version. Any brief explaination and screen guide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Google is your friend:  http://www.linuxmail.info/active-directory-integration-samba-centos-5/

but I do mantain, if you support this in a professional environment point-and-click guides will not get you very far, you have to understand what mechanisms you are using to provide the services. :)
