Step by step,

yum install nscd samba samba-common samba-client samba-winbind

yum upgrade

vi /etc/hosts dc.domain.com pdc01

Run authconfig-tui
Authentication Configuration – check Cache Information, Use Winbind, Use MD5 Passwords, Use Shadow Passwords, Use Winbind Authentication
Winbind Settings – check ads, type the short name of the domain, example.com needs to be just example in this field, enter FQDN of domain controllers, ADS realm is FQDN of primary DC, check /bin/bash
Click on Join Domain
Enter credentials for a domain administrator and make sure the server successfully joined the domain

NOTE: This step will restore the hiberfil.sys file, and the Allow hybrid sleep and Hibernate after Power Options under Sleep.

A) Open a Elevated Command Prompt.

B) In the elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h on and press Enter.

C) Close the elevated command prompt.

2. To Disable Hibernate
NOTE: This step will disable hibernation, delete the hiberfil.sys file, and remove the Allow hybrid sleep and Hibernate after Power Options under Sleep. This will also disable fast startup in Windows 8.

1. Open a Elevated Command Prompt.

2. In the elevated command prompt, type powercfg -h off and press Enter.

3. Close the elevated command prompt.

Append the following rules before the final INPUT – REJECT line:
(note we’re running the webpage on port 3000 and receiving netflow traffic on port 9996)

-A INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 3000 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m state –state NEW -m udp -p udp –dport 9996 -j ACCEPT

Then restart iptables

service iptables restart

cd /usr/local/ntop/bin
./usr/local/ntop/bin/ntop -P /usr/local/ntop -u ntop -d -w 3000 -i eth0
test via webpage:3000

vi /etc/rc.local
add in
/usr/local/ntop/bin/ntop -P /usr/local/ntop -u ntop -d -w 3000 -i eth0

Setting web options:
The first time you open the ntop web interface you’ll need to do the following:
1. head to plugins -> netflow -> activate
This will activate netflow, don’t click the “yes” option as this will toggle it off again.
2. head to plugins -> netflow -> view/configure
3. Create a new collector named “eth#-collector” where # is the eth interface number you’re sending data to.
4. Edit this collector and ensure the following settings are in place:
– local collector udp port: 9996
– flow aggregation: none
– enable session handling: no
– assume ftp: no
– debug: off
5. Head to Admin -> Configure -> Preferences
6. change dot.path value to “/usr/bin/dot” (hit set when done)
7. head to http://code.google.com/apis/console and get a google maps API key (turn on Google maps API v2 and create a new browser-referrer key)
8. head back to Admin -> Configure -> Preferences
9. change google_maps.key value to your copied key (hit set when done)
10. stop ntop (killall ntop)
11. reboot server and confirm ntop starts upon boot.
