This is what I have:

  • Group of computers under DOMAIN.LOCAL and all users provided by Active Directory in Windows Server
  • Debian server
  • Windows AD, DC server

What I need:

  • Share a folder from my DebianServer to the other computers so they authenticate with their own users provided by windows AD

What I have already done:

  • My DebianServer is already in the DOMAIN.LOCAL
  • I can login to DebianServer with all the AD users from windows

What I can't:

  • Access the shared folder with the DOMAIN.LOCAL users

Important files:


passwd:         compat sss
group:          compat sss
shadow:         compat sss
gshadow:        files

  • Have you set up domain permissions on the individual directories? – Raman Sailopal Feb 1 '18 at 12:48
  • The point is that I have not been able. Using: "chown -R root:MY_AD_GROUP /my_shared_folder" doesn't work – arturo.mj Feb 1 '18 at 12:57
  • Can you see the domain users with "getent passwd" – Raman Sailopal Feb 1 '18 at 13:05
  • No. But I can login and I try "kinit user" "klist" and works fine. – arturo.mj Feb 1 '18 at 21:51
  • If I use "getent passw USER_FROM_DOMAIN" I get what it is supposed, but when I use just "getent passw" I only get the local users – arturo.mj Feb 2 '18 at 8:22
