I've got an unpatched W2K Pro system and I'm trying to join it to the 3.0.7
domain. I put in root and root's password for the domain administrator. The
root user's uid is 0 and root is in Domain Users and works for logging into
other workstations in the domain.
W2K reports "User not found" when I try to join the domain. However, the
machine account is indeed created in LDAP! But the machine doesn't think it
I saw some references to problems with the 'nobody' account in W2K. I have a
"Domain Guests" group RID 514 mapped to UNIX GID 514. The GID exists on the
domain only. THe mapping shows up in the 'net' command.
Even on that W2K machine, I can browse the domain through Network Places. So
it is some other user that is not found. Maybe the machine name isn't
found?? I looked in the LDAP and Samba logs and I see nothing. Here is my
"Add machine script" line:
add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w "%u"
