Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 Samba can be configured to join a Windows Domain and authenticate Windows Domain Users via Active Directory.
The configuration requires Samba, Name Service Switch, DNS, and Local Hostname components be configured.
The document will provide configuration examples needed to join a Solaris 10 or Solaris 11 Samba server to the Windows Domain and authenticate users via ADS.
NOTE: Solaris 11 also provides the SMB and Windows Interoperability capability to join a Windows Domain and share files.
It differs significantly from the Samba configuration referenced in this document.
For information on Solaris 11 SMB Server please refer to the documentation:
