I am working on critical bug and I need your help on the below query
We are unable to join the domain and create computer account when username contains % in it.
I found this bug in samba website. I believe this is the issue that we are seeing now https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8758
I believe the issue could be that we use "%" as the delimiter between username and password
net ads join -s XYZ.conf -U "username%"%"password" createcomputer= XXXXXXXX hostnames=XXXXXXX
If you have seen this issue earlier if so please let me how to overcome this or any available workaround for it
Is there a way to change the delimiter from % to any other character?
