How to join a VirtualBox VM running Linux OS to a Windows domain

I have a number of VirtualBox VMs that run on the Linux operating system.  The host machine runs Windows 10, and it is a member of a Windows domain.  I would like to share files that I have on the Windows domain.  The only way I can do this appears to be to join the Linux VMs to the Windows domain.  How can I do this?

You should be able to use smbclient to connect to the domain share.  You don't have to join a domain to access the share.  You just need the account credentials.

smbclient //server/sharename -U domain/username

Hi serialband,

Thank you for the SMB command.  One question regarding this command:  when I execute it, I get the following message - "Warning:  The "syslog" is deprecated."  Is there a replacement for the command that avoids this warning>

check the /etc/smb.conf file

- In the smb.conf file - find the "syslog = ..." line - put a # in front of that line.
