As you may have noticed, I'm trying to setup my Samba server so that it
is the PDC. I'm reading the howtos on
Besides being a PDC, samba should use LDAP as the backend for storing
The LDAP contains the user/group accounts as listed in the idealx howto
from http://samba.idealx.org/dist/samba-ldap-howto.pdf, page 41.
The Windows 2000 Pro machine which should join the domain is called
"VIRTUAL-TEICH", so I added a machine account "VIRTUAL-TEICH$" to the
I'm now trying to actually add the machine to the domain. So I right
clicked on the "Workspace" (? Arbeitsplatz) icon to open the system
preferences. Then on "Network identification" (?
Netzwerkidentifikation) -> "Properties" (? Eigenschaften). There I
changed the radio button from Workgroup to Domain and entered the name
I've set in /etc/samba/smb.conf "workgroup = MDKGROUP" (I entered
MDKGROUP). Then a dialog popped up, and I entered a user name which is
listed in LDAP (I've tried using a username of a member of the Domain
Admins group as well as from a plain normal user). Both times I get the
following error message in /var/log/messages:
May 9 21:42:04 teich smbd: [2002/05/09 21:42:04, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldap_open_connection(79)
May 9 21:42:04 teich smbd: ldap_open_connection: cannot access LDAP when not root..
Attaching shares with usernames which are only listed in the LDAP works
fine. But before I tried this, I made sure to remove all attached
shares and reboot the machine.
I also tried using "root" as the username, but then the Windows 2000
just hangs. In /var/log/messages I get:
May 9 21:51:37 teich smbd: api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.
Oh, after quite some time (~1 minute), a dialog in Win2000 popped up:
"Willkommen zur Domäne MDKGROUP". ;)
Well, I dislike this. Do I really have to use root to join the domain?
This is with samba 2.2.4 on MandrakeLinux 8.2.
What am I missing?
