So I take it you now have a Samba AD DC running in a VM and have joined
a Win10 machine to the domain. You now want a domain user to be able to
login directly into the Samba AD DC.
Provided you have installed the right packages, it may just be as
simple as telling /etc/nsswitch.conf to use winbind for the passwd &
You will also have to add a couple of lines to the smb.conf:
template shell = /bin/bash
template homedir = /home/%U
The last line isn't that important, the default is:
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
With this you will have to create a directory in /home named after your
WORKGROUP (it has to be in uppercase)
Finally, add this line to /etc/pam.d/common-session :
session required pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0022
So, what packages did you install before you provisioned Samba ?
i.e. apt-get install samba ????????????????
