I'm using Active Directory to log into RHEL. To do this, I followed the steps outlined here:
I'd like to be able to read data from Windows Servers shared folders without being prompted for a password.
On Windows I log into an AD domain, and when I access windows file shares on a server on the LAN (also part of the AD domain) my I can just access them with no authentication step.
I've used SMBclient on Linux to access these shares, but it asks for my password.
I would like to be able to script access to the data on the shares, but I can't if there's a password prompt in the way. Well, I could, but it's not how I want to do it.
Now, since I'm logged in using my active directory username & password, can't I just access the shares without jumping that extra hoop?
I know I can mount the share using something like:
//192.168.0.5/share /mnt/windows cifs auto,username=steve,password=secret,rw 0 0
but access will depend who is logged in... each user logging in should have their own unique AD access privelages.
Thanks for reading!
