[Samba] It would seem to be simple but it's got me scratching

A few pointers might help you. I had to sweat my way through this stuff so
I can document it for my new book. This gave me one of those rare moments
when I started with totally clean systems and set everything up on an
isolated network. A real tease!
1. Beware of the ldap.conf file that has:
when it should be:
That extra "s" caught me too. It's oly one character though! :)
2. Do not use the "Computers" container for machine accounts. It breaks.
You can totally avoid the problem by just using the "People" container.
There is apparently a Samba/LDAP search bug there. Jerry did warn me, but
I had to prove it for myself! :(
The symptom of the bug is that Samba (LDAP) can not find the trust account
for the workstation (same for BDCs).
3. Current CVS (and 3.0.1) has apparanetly a bug that prevents
Workstations from logging onto the domain for the first time. I
down-graded to CVS December 1st, and I could log on. Then I updated to
current CVS and it works fine. This bug bites only when a machine first
joins the domain. Rejoins work fine.
4. As for the vampire process - make sure that the back-end you use can
create accounts that have spaces and/or upper-case characters in the name.
If your backend can't handle this you must create a work-around that
intercepts the illegal name and mangles it to something that is legal for
the underlying backend.
I hope these comments prove a little helpful - if not too late.
