Hello,

Trying to setup a Samba file share on a Linux(centos7) using SSSD and Azure AD DS.

Cannot get this going.  Any ideas or documentation.

 

I have read that this may not be possible and that I may have to use ldap or secure ldap t authenticate.  Possibly use winbind, I am not sure this is compatible with Azure AD DS.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you

It's probably a LOT easier to do this with Azure files rather than force Linux to deal with AAD.

But if you really want to do it, a few tidbits:

But oh my it is so much easier to use Azure Files for that
