TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Turnkey File server as member server of Windows 2000 AD.

Does anyone has detailed instructions on how to set up Turnkey Linux File Server to be a member server of a Windows 2000 AD domain?  I would like to use the users and groups from the domain to authenticate to the shared folders of the Turnkey File Server.

I hope someone has this info.

Should be possible

But i have never done it myself. I thought there was something relevant in the docs but I can't find it right now. It may involve a little mucking around to get it all to work nicely, but should be possible.

Anyway, if you keep in mind that TKL v11.x is based on Ubuntu 10.04/Lucid and uses Samba 3 for the filesharing then you should be able to find plenty of info on the Ubuntu forums/wiki and/or via google.

If you get it all working nicely be great if you could post back - or better still post in the TKL docs (its a wiki).
