7.5. Summary

Many Windows networks use NT domain controllers or AD domain controllers to provide authentication services to Windows systems. You can tap into this existing resource to provide automatic account creation and password authentication on a Linux systemeven one that doesn't function as a Samba server. To do this, you must adjust some smb.conf entries, run the Winbind daemon, and configure the PAM and NSS systems to use Winbind for account authentication and information queries. Once this system is configured and running, users shouldn't be able to tell that Winbind is in use; everything should work just as it does with a local account database.
