Re: Samba error

What version of samba are you running?

Do you have Kerberos client installed and configured?

I just added a samba server to a ADS 2003 domain using the following:
./net ads join -U USER -S ADSERVER -s /smb.conf

Remember that the user account must be able to add computer accounts to the AD domain.

Re: Samba error

Hi,

whats in your smb.conf file?

there should be something like:

workgroup =
security = domain
password server = ,


then " /opt/samba/bin/net rpc join -U username%passwd " should work.

Be sure that your smbd is down while joining.

Re: Samba error

Hi,
My smb.conf is something like

workgroup = domain name
netbios name = unix hostname
server string = samba server
security = DOMAIN
password server = domain controller1
log file = /var/opt/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
local master = No
kernel oplocks = No
read only = No
create mask = 0775
directory mask = 0775
short preserve case = No
preserve case = Yes
oplocks = No
dos filetime resolution = Yes


smbd and nmbd process are runnig on server.

Re: Samba error

At last it joined the domain after adding wins server = IP of WIns server to the smb.conf file.

Re: Samba error

I solved the problem by adding wins server to smb.conf.


See my previous comment.
