Subject: [rt-users] auth with smb?
Is anyone using RT with their users stored in either a
Windows domain or Active Directory? Would you be willing
to share what you’ve had to do to get it working, perhaps
I’m particularly interested in authenticating via smb WITHOUT
having equivalent users in /etc/passwd.
I’ve got that sort of scenario working pretty well, using Apache’s
mod_auth_ldap to authenticate against our Active Directory server, with
a couple of code snippets from the mailing list archives to auto-create
entries in RT’s user database as necessary.
Do feel free to drop me a note directly if you’d like. I’ll be glad to
share whatever help I can.
