Okay, maybe not so true, but I have problems. I was able to get my two
new NT servers to join the domain after much kicking and screaming ...
cursing at M$ and all they where putting me through. I found out the hard
way how to get an NT box to join a 2.0.7 domain.
Step one create a Unix user for the machine account. Making sure that
you remember to add the user with Caps ... i.e. ...
Step two create a Samba user for the machine account. Again making sure
that you remember to add the user with Caps ... i.e. ...
smbpasswd -a -m SQLSERVER$
Step three, set your NT box Computer name to the Samba Machine name.
i.e. SQLSERVER ... and your domain to what ever you have called your domain
( or workgroup as the doc's explain ).
Now I am able to log onto my NT Box's using the domain, user name and
password. Great all seems to work well, but now I have to reinstall
Terminal Server and SQL Server because there SID's ( I think ) is all
confused ... so here goes.
If any body has any more comments on this please feel free to put your
$0.02 worth in ... in SA it's worth a lot more ...
Thanks again to everybody including the Samba Dev team and our little helps
who all have something worthy to say ...
