Domain join plugin

  • Hi
    i have tried to join my omv to my 2012R2 active directory several times,
    and i am not glad to say - i have failed every time.
    i have a hard time around linux - i admit it


    isn't there any plugin or script that will make the domain join more friendly \ automatic?
    there's must be a way to make this process easier


    thanks in advance guys

  • Try this.....not a plugin but an accurate guide

    thanks for your reply.
    i already tried following this guide before creating this post.
    i seem to have failed somewhere along the way and i don't where.


    thanks a lot anyway

  • Hi


    I'm using a new method to join omv in a domain without using a LDAP server. It seems to work well and it is rather well documented in samba. Most users seem to use the RID backend. I prefer rfc2307.


    Anyway, this is rather easy.


    @abivarilan : the guide to join a windows 2012 ad is rather simple. My method is mostly the same.


    Are you able to read French ? I wrote my method in my own wiki, and I m lacking time to rewrite it here (in English) for now.


    https://howto-it.dethegeek.eu.…tager_via_CIFS/SMB_et_NFS
    This should work for windows AD and samba AD.


    If there is a good documentation about writing a plugin maybe I will find time to do it. I need help to do this.

    My wiki : http://howto-it.dethegeek.eu.org


    = latest setup =
    proxmox VE 6 hypervisor on a J1900 CPU + 8GB RAM
    guests : OpenWRT (VM), OMV 5 (VM), Samba 4 domain controller (LXC)
    OMV alive since 2011 I guess : never crashed, always upgraded : stronger than my hard drives.


    Searching for a P2P online storage solution : must be open source, client side encrypted, quota supprt. Tahoe LAFS is the nearest, but is lacking quota. Would be perfect to build a OMV based, anonymous online storage for backups


  • Thanks a lot.
    unfortunately i didnt manage to get this working for me
    but thanks for your help indeed
