KB-0412: How to give access to public shares for non-Zone enabled AD users

Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify DirectControl Plugins ,  

3 June,16 at 12:10 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify-Enabled Samba

Question: 
How can Centrify-Enabled samba be configured so that non-Zone enabled AD Users can access public shares without being prompted for password?

Answer: 
By default only Zone enabled AD users are permitted to access the public shares that are configured under Samba. 

To give access to non-Zone enabled users, please perform the following steps: 

  1. Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and add the following to the [globals] section:

    guest account = nobody 
    map to guest = Bad Uid 

  2. Add the following to public shares:

    guest ok = yes 

  3. Restart samba services 

  4. Connect to the share from a Windows desktop or UNIX workstation as a non-Zone enabled AD user and test.
