Subject: [Samba] Unable to join W2K Active Directory Domain
Hello all ...
I'm trying to join a W2K domain and I'm getting the following error message:
sun220:root# smbpasswd -j hern
cli_net_req_chal: Error NT_STATUS_INVALID_COMPUTER_NAME
cli_nt_setup_creds: request challenge failed
modify_trust_password: unable to setup the PDC credentials to
machine xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(IP ommitted). Error was : NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL.
2002/07/24 09:44:18 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to
change password for domain HERN.
Unable to join domain HERN.
I'm talking to the Windows admin ... and he assures me that the machine was
created with the same name as in my smb.conf, he did in fact check the
"allow non-W2K machines to use this account" box ...
I'm at a loss ... given the fact that I am not able to administer the W2K
side of things (rather I'm not allowed to) ... is there anything relevant in
the above error message which points to the problem.
