Re: [Samba] How to disable NTLM authentication on Samba

I must be missing something-

Are these Windows clients?  Or are these Linux clients authenticating against Samba ?

if they were linux clients then yes I could see sssd or other authentication components besides winbind coming into play. And in that case yes you would have sssd work with winbind to enable caching of credentials.

Is the event log entry below from the server ?   Is it from the domain controller or a file server?

What version of Samba are you running?

Are the files servers and domain controllers all Samba or do you have a mix of say Samba file servers with Windows AD servers?

The "no logon server" entry looks more relevant.      What version of Windows clients.        I think NTLMv2 is supported as far back as NT 4.0 SP6.         Windows 2000 and later should be trying to use kerberos in preference to NTLM.   By chance have you disabled NTLMv2 and only enabled v1?      Are some windows clients failing while others succeeding ?

Whenever a client uses NTLM as authentication, it fails (logs bellow) since SSSD can't support NTLM. Thus my question: what can I do to prevent NTLM from being used??

How would samba forward any requests on to any other service ?       You
can have sssd setup on a server if you also need to support things like
ssh, sftp, and nfs but that is separate from samba's "Windows" services.

Or do you mean it forwards NTLM requests to a different server ?

Disabling NTLM altogether would be a useful feature if you are trying to
minimize the attack surface.
