Kerberos authentication for SMB users connecting to Solaris SMB server
is under development, so it's not currently supported.

Hi Alan,

Thank you for the flag.
I am downloading b134 from

I have setup AD on Win2008r2 as well as DNS

The intent is to show that users will be created in AD
Once osol is integrated with the AD as a kerberos client for
authentication, users will be able to login into osol via their auth to AD.

I have skimmed through the docs on setting up kerberos client for AD

Q1)I am presuming that perhaps prior to this, the only step required on
the osol side would be to
setup nsswitch.conf and resolv.conf.

Is that correct ?

Q2) How does the CIFS setup on domain-mode work in conjunction to the
above methodology ?

Is that a 2ndary step I could do to show CIFS file sharing, or do the
latter steps call kclient internally ?

thank you

For use with Windows, it would be better to upgrade to something
more recent than OpenSolaris 2009.06. The SMB support in 2009.06
is broken.


I am reading up on the following for kclient

But my question is more on the AD side.
I have setup AD on the demo machine.

Q) In 2003, there was a SFU that enabled the AD to have the schema
for unix
Is a similar setting required for 2008 ?
Pointers to where this needs to be done would be appreciated.

thank you
