I have a freshly installed Ubuntu 11.04 server. I would like to create a Samba share and integrate the permissions for it with my existing Active Directory domain. I started to follow this article (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto) but it was a spaghetti mess of links to other outdated articles. Does anyone know of a current tutorial on how to do this? Thanks!

It lists the following prerequisites 1. Software * Samba > 3.0.20 * Kerberos MIT/Heimdal * ntp * often cups-Server 2. Permissions/Users * root-user on the server * an AD user with the permission to join AD

Am I safe to just apt-get install samba smbfs? I'm new to samba/kerberos and see a lot of related packages.

For Kerberos the Ubuntu site says to install krb5-user, krb5-config, and libkadm55. libkadm55 doesn't exist. what should i do there?

Have you checked the Samba wiki? I haven't used it, but they seem to have process for having Samba authenticate against Active Directory for shares. http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_&_Active_Directory

If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll try writing one up.
