CENTOS as Linux Client

Postby ssosts1 » 2017/12/11 00:20:05

I need to connect CENTOS 7 as a linux client to Windows Server 2012.
-CENTOS should be able to connect to the web server which is also a file sharing server.
- Also, users in the AD of another Windows server(which is serving as DNS server) should be able to authenticate and log in to the CENTOS using same credentials.
- CENTOS should be be assigned IP address automatically in the range of let's say 10.0.1.100-200.
I have not used CENTOS before and I have no clue where to start. Any help will be appreciated.

"-CENTOS should be able to connect to the web server which is also a file sharing server."
Do you mean that you want to map a windows share? If so, I think you should look at the samba client.

"- CENTOS should be be assigned IP address automatically in the range of let's say 10.0.1.100-200."
This is done by your DHCP server (typically your router). You need to setup Centos to use DHCP (which I think is default).

To use your active directory from CentOS, look at the sssd package.
