[Samba] Samba-3.0.2 PDC LDAP: Add computer to domain issue with
dave at dcdata.co.za
Thu Feb 26 13:08:58 GMT 2004
I've installed openldap-2.1.25 and Samba-3.0.2 and configured everything
with no TLS on a Slackware-9.1 Linux box.
To manage the LDAP backed I've used smbldap-tools-0.8.4.
After populating the database with smbldap-populate I was able to first
add users to /etc/passwd etc. and then to LDAP with smbldap-useradd -a
and access the server via Windows PCs. Everything appeared to be working
My only problem is that I cannot seem to get a machine account added
correctly. I've added the PC name to /etc/passwd etc. with "useradd -s
/bin/false -g computers pc1$" and also run "smbldap-useradd -w pc1".
When the computer attempts to join the domain it receives an "unable to
join domain" error. It seems that "smbldap-useradd -w pc1" seems to add
only a posix account to the LDAP backend ?:
pc1$, Computers, domain.net
I've missed something somewhere for sure ? Perhaps I need nss_ldap ?
I've also tried using the smbldap-tools that come with samba-3.0.2.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you kindly.
Many thanks and kind regards,
