Client Config for Samba/LDAP Domain

Currently running Samba-LDAP PDC. Windows clients can log in and access network shares without being password challenged. Linux clients can log in to the domain as well and their desktop/home folder is loaded from the pdc. However the linux client must enter password to access samba shares. I believe that ldap is supposed fix this as it is a Single Sign on issue… howver I can’t configure this suse client to be able to access samba shares without a password and a valid domain user logged on. Can anyone help me get this configured?

I am having the same problem, did you find the answer to the problem?

The windows machines can access to the samba shares without the need to enter a password but the Linux PC are promted for a password, even if they are part of the domain.

I am using a PDC Samba + LDAP + WINS + DHCP server.

This is the smb.conf file of the Linux client, I used the yast domain membership wizard to setup the connection.
