Hello all, I've set up samba as a PDC in FreeBSD 5.1-release. I seemed to
have no problems joining my computer to the domain as it said "Welcome to
the domain" but when I try and log in it says it can't contact the domain
controller or the domain account doesn't exist. Can anyone offer any help on
how to fix this?


Here is my smb.conf.


Kind regards,




    workgroup = MENZOBERRANZAN

    encrypt passwords = yes

    netbios name = elvar


    domain master = yes

    local master = yes

    preferred master = yes

    os level = 65


    security = user

    domain logons = yes


    logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u\%m

    logon script = logon.bat


    logon drive = H:


    time server = yes


    domain admin group = root elvar natina


    add user script = /usr/sbin/pw user add %u -d /nonexistent -g users -s



    path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon

    writable = no

    browsable = no



    path = /home/profiles

    browsable = no

    writable = yes

    create mask = 0600

    directory mask = 0700



    read only = no

    browsable = no

    guest ok = no

    map archive = yes
