I've been poring through the archives for a couple hours now, and I just
can't get this damn thing to work. I've tried both pre3.0 (accidentally)
and 2.2.0-alpha1. I'm somewhat confused about what versions, exactly, will
work. The HOWTO rather clearly says that 2.2.0-alpha1 will not work, but
it also rather clearly gives instructions on how to fetch just that
version. That's also the version a lot of people on this list seem to be
using. So maybe I'm using the wrong version; if so, please give me precise
instructions on how to fetch via CVS the proper version.
The problem is that when I try to join the domain, Windows responds in
almost exactly 3 seconds:
"The following error occurred validating the name "grpkp".
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."
"grpkp" is not the name I plan to keep, but someone reported that it worked
for him, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I have tried 589,578 different
domain names, all with an odd number of letters.
01/04 05:15:04 NetpValidateName: checking to see if 'grpkp' is valid as
type 3 name
01/04 05:15:07 NetpCheckDomainNameIsValid for grpkp returned 0x54b
01/04 05:15:07 NetpCheckDomainNameIsValid [ Exists ] for 'grpkp'
Monitoring log.smbd and log.nmbd using tail -f while this is going on
produces no noteworthy data.
