I have a server running Ubuntu 9.04 joined to our domain using Likewise.

I would like to be able to log into the server using credentials from Active Directory instead of creating a whole new set of accounts.

Can anyone point me towards documentation on how to do this? I have taken a look but I am teh fail.

Thanks!

Here is something:
http://aeronetworks.ca/LinuxActiveDirectory.html

Note that Mandriva, Suse and Redhat Fedora now have working wizards for that.

once the machine is joined to the domain any user can login as "DOMAINNAME\username"

Works a little better to do it as user@domain
