Continuing AD with SaltStack; onwards with Samba!
Installs Samba for SMB support for AD
samba-pkg: pkg.installed: - pkgs: - samba - samba-common
Sometimes it is handy if users are managed somewhere other than
/etc/passwd – somewhere central. Sometimes this happens to be Active Directory.
This post describes an approach on Debian Jessie against AD on Windows 2016 based on this excellent RedHat Guide’s Configuration 3 – SSSD/Kerberos/LDAP. It works very well for me. If you use a Debian-based distribution (Ubuntu, Debian etc) then hopefully it will work for you too.
I originally published this data on the Debian Wiki; I intend to expand it somewhat here.
