Do any of you have linux servers joined to your active directory. Is there anything that needs to be done to the linux server before it can be joined to a predominantly microsoft network? How do you remotely support the server with windows domain credentials, is that even possible?

Here is an excellent article from MS Technet on Authenticating Linux clients with Active Directory (Using Samba and Winbind):

I'll have a good read through the link later. Is SAMBA the tool that allows an admin to view shares on linux as you would a normal windows share.
Do you need to use SAMBA if you have a Linux server joined to AD, or can you have a linux server joined to AD that doesnt have SAMBA
