Or is it:
a twisty maze of little passages : N
a little maze of twisty passages : N
but I keep missing my batteries! <and my lantern is going dim...>
[sorry for the OLD reference!]
Was: Help-w2k pro no longer "trusted" in 2.2.3 pdc
------------------Here is the pre-amble and request?!----------------
Here's my story...sad but true.
I've got a run-away PDC, that makes me blue.
It don't see my NT-clients nice anymore,
now it says, "get offa my Floor"
And I'm in the doghouse so I'm writing you
so that I don't kicked out,and get black and blue
------------------Here is the problem----------------
I have several W2k Workstations, with a SAMBA 2.2.3 PDC.
Problem is that I must have removed all of the important parts of the
OUTLAND is domain, W2k/ clients are milo and lola.
They WERE working fine on the domain. I did SOMETHING (??)
and now I get a message that says (when I try and log on: The system cannot
log you on to this domain because the system computer account in its
primary domain is missing or the password on that account is incorrect.
now: I tried to delete the machine accounts (milo$ and lola$)
using userdel and smbpasswd -x to eliminate all traces.
Tried to change out of domain, changed machine name, log
in: still no good, same messages.
Then I tried the same thing, but this time also deleted the
secrets.tdb file. Then did a smbpasswd to add the root account
STILL same problem
HELP! I have no idea what to do!
The last thing I tried was to to change the machine name
and out of the outland domain.
So I tried to change the name of the client to stevedallas,
and the workgroup to temp
That change worked ok. After this, I logged in, ok (as admin),
and was then able to change back to outland domain.
Now I was able to log in as workstation/administator
and I added new user/browse and it did see the outland domain.
I click my outland domain name, and next and the the message:
The user could not be added because the following error
The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary
SO I am stuck without getting any user logins (at least I
can login as admin...
please point me in the right direction??? thanks
