It is not surprising that more and more users looks for Active Directory as the way to unify and to simplify the way to authenticate/authorize users and to save some money too.
After all Active Directory and Windows are almost in every office on this planet. Not to mention that if you work in a heavily audited environment the ability to have a single store of users definitions is really a blessing!
For about the last two months now, I am trying to get
ftp working for AIX users authenticated with Kerberos services provided by Active Directory (2012).
I am not doing it alone, I have an open PMR and after numerous
snaps, and so forth my KERBEROS authenticated users still cannot use ftp…. and this sucks!
The locally (admin accounts) defined users can but the “flash & bone” users, the ones “living” in Active Directory cannot.
Is there someone out there who got this working and who is willing to share his/her knowledge, please?
