Hi George,

Samba server can work in two ways as afs gateway:
1) old way use a clear text password from client, this option is
disable by default for security reason. If you want use this method
you need to set clear text on all your clients

2) new way, the samba server can work as a kaserver, that means the
samba can create a afs token for each user ( you need put the key
master password on samba tdb)

more information you can retrieve from :


in special way :
- Samba as an openafs gateway
- Exporting AFS space via CIFS
