I'm trying to set up my Ubuntu 14.04 print server to authenticate users with my Active Directory server, I've followed all of the steps using the following tutorial:


I've also set /opt/pbis/bin/config RequireMembershipOf $domain\\$myusergroup

When I try to login using a correct username and password, I get the message "Access denied", however when I try to connect using an incorrect password, I get the message "Invalid password." This tells me that my machine is in fact communicating with active directory, but there's something holding it back from accepting the login - maybe some sort of permission that is set incorrectly.

If anyone knows how I can fix this, please respond. Thanks ahead of time.

  • Ive had similar issues, ended up being my pam configuration, double check that – person Nov 26 '16 at 0:55

try /opt/pbis/bin/config RequireMembershipOf $domain\$myusergroup
