Integrating with Samba
Samba 3.0, which is the current build of Samba at the time of this writing, provides client-side support of Active Directory. OpenLDAP and MIT Kerberos must also be installed on the client to provide full LDAP and Kerberos functionality.
Samba has a rich history of providing Unix integration and interoperability solutions for the Windows NOS under Windows NT. Samba is typically deployed so that Windows-based clients can use Unix-based file and print services seamlessly. A Samba server can join a Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 domain as a member server.
