Re: [Samba] PAM only and Kerberos...

In my old Samba/NT/OpenLDAP domains i was used to setup, on some

Seems to me now, on Samba/AD, to use Kerberos. And seems also TOO easy!

I've simply installed 'libpam-krb5', reply to the debconfig question
wit the AD/Kerberos domain/realm and... voilà, works as expected. Cool!

But, lacking some docs on samba wiki, i've some question more:

a) i suppose that Kerberos use DNS to resolve servers; in a complex
  setup there's some way to have kerberos use the servers from the same

b) i use the same setup in firewalls, that have no knowledge of
  internal DNS. There's some way to setup kerberos authentication with
'no DNS'?! EG, putting some info on /etc/hosts?!

Yes, check the documentation of krb5.conf. In summary you will need to disable dns_canonicalize_hostname dns_lookup_kdc , etc if enabled and set you admin and kdc hostnames there, something like:

  kdc = kdc.example.com:88
  master_kdc = kdc.example.com:88
  admin_server = kadmin.example.com:749
  default_domain = example.com
