I have an Ubuntu server joined to our office Active Directory domain (Windows 2008) and it all seems happy. I can ssh to the server using my AD credentials and home directories get created and all is fine.
I want to share a directory out from the server and use AD authentication (security = ads) using Samba.
Following the docs, I got to the situation where I can see the share externally, but my AD credentials do not allow me to connect.
Using the same credentials from the server itself works using mount.cifs -- i.e. I can mount
I cannot get it to work from my desktop using my AD credentials, but I can connect using a set of Unix credentials so it seems that Samba can't resolve my AD details, but that confuses me as I can use AD credentials using mount.cifs as stated above.
Is there something about the way Windows provides the credentials that Samba doesn't understand?
I haven't set up Subversion on the server yet, but when I do will I be able to use AD credentials to authenticate on HTTP access via Apache?
