That is actually pretty good news. The real requirement is network storage for the Windows workstations secured by FreeIPA authentication. If I read what you’ve said correctly this is possible now. I can live with the magical incantations to enrol any new Windows machines for now. There are a few things that would work better if Windows thought it was logging on to a domain, but we have lived without those features for the last year. Once a Windows machine has been set up correctly, which can be a bit hit and miss, the authentication works flawlessly .
To be clear, we have not tested this combination so you'll be in uncharted waters.
Since TGT for these users would still be issued by FreeIPA KDC, it would include MS-PAC with SIDs of these users in FreeIPA domain -- once you have run ipa-adtrust-install, of course. Thus, smbd on IPA master would be able to recognize them as FreeIPA users regardless where they come from -- IPA or Windows machines, as long as Kerberos is in use. Any reports of how such setup would actually behave are welcomed.
It sounds as though I can set up the file server now and then extend it to do the AD DC bit when it is ready.
I don’t suppose there is a Samba 4 + FreeIPA 3 file server HowTo anywhere is there?
The only requirements for simplistic setup is to: 1. run file server on IPA master (you can make a dedicated replica for that) 2. run ipa-adtrust-install on that master to setup Samba configuration and enable KDC + directory server to handle SIDs 3. use 'net conf setparm ...' to setup shares, since Samba on IPA master uses registry backend to store smb.conf configuration. See http://www.freeipa.org/page/Howto/IPAv3_AD_trust_setup#Using_Samba_shares for sample how to work with 'net conf setparm'. For 'valid users' I guess you can use simply user names since these would be our local ones. Again, this is completely untested right now. -- / Alexander Bokovoy _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
