Help SOS,
Im trying to install Samba 4 on a Debian System. Because I need it for
my Study.
I tried to install like in Samba4/Howto.
But after I had ran Step 4 provision:
./setup/provision --realm=YOUR.REALM --domain=YOURDOM
--adminpass=SOMEPASSWORD --server-role='domain controller'
I got :
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./setup/provision", line 158, in ?
  File "bin/python/samba/", line 959, in provision
    hostip = socket.getaddrinfo(names.hostname, None, socket.AF_INET,
socket.AI_CANONNAME, socket.IPPROTO_IP)[0][-1][0]
socket.gaierror: (-2, 'Name or service not known')

I'm dissatisfied and I have no ideas.

I 'm still waiting for a help or solution and I'll be deeply gratful
