I configured and installed samba 2.2.3a on my Red Hat 7.2 server, and I want
the server to join a domain for authentication. I have already done that
using RH 6.2 and samba 2.2.2 but now I am experiencing some difficulties.
My smb.conf file says:
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
netbios name = AMAROK
server string = Samba Server on AMAROK
interfaces = eth0
security = DOMAIN
encrypt passwords = Yes
password server = MYSERVER
When I use the command:
smbpasswd -j MyDomain
I get the following answer:
fetch_domain_sid: unable to connect to SMB server on machine MyServer. Error
was : SUCCESS - 0.
Failed to get domain SID. Unable to join domain MYDOMAIN.
I am unsure about the meaning of the error message: It says
Error was: SUCCESS.
Which I find a bit deceiving!
I can connect to my shares from my win machine because I created an entry
for myself in the smbpasswd file, giving the same password I use to
authenticate to the W2K domain, but authentication is done at the samba
server level, I want authentication from the domain controller.
Another bit of information: When I installed my RH server, I selected medium
security and that installed some ipchains rules that blocked off access to
swat. I had to rework the rules to allow me to connect to swat. Maybe there
are some other rules that prevent access to ports 137 to 139 that I have not
