Chapter 6. Domain Membership


Domain Membership is a subject of vital concern. Samba must be able to participate as a member server in a Microsoft Domain Security contex, and Samba must be capable of providing Domain machine member trust accounts, otherwise it would not be able to offer a viable option for many users.

This chapter covers background information pertaining to Domain Membership, the Samba configuration for it, and MS Windows client procedures for joining a domain. Why is this necessary? Because both are areas in which there exists within the current MS Windows networking world and particularly in the UNIX/Linux networking and administration world, a considerable level of misinformation , incorrect understanding and a lack of knowledge. Hopefully this chapter will fill the voids.
