Running Samba 2.2 as a PDC...
Supposedly it can let Windows 2000 SP2 machines connect to it.
Unfortunately, I'm having problems. I can browse the shares
(like \\horizon works) however joining the domain is a different story.
I end up with a "Specificed user does not exist" error.
User DOES exist,
[usr/local/samba/lib]>>>grep -v "^;" smb.conf | sed -e "/^[ ]*$/d"
netbios name = horizon
workgroup = realm
Domain Admin group = @domain_admins
log level = 2
os level = 1000
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
smb passwd file= /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
domain logons = yes
path = /usr/export/netlogon
public = no
writeable = no
write list = @domain_admins
path = /usr/export/ntprofile
writeable = yes
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
path = /usr/export/secure
writeable = yes
username = administrator
Entries were created using smbpasswd and the user physically exists.
I can logon to the domain no problem in Windows 98
The what's new file that came with it does specify that they have
fixed stuff to allow win2k to logon to a samba PDC. Has anyone had
any luck with this or can they tell me where I'm going wrong?
