Well a How-To Guide said to use that command after everything is setup. I tried using Windows 2000 Client to join the domain, but it would not, said domain dns lookup failed. Any help?

I am running Samba 2.2.11 on a RedHat Linux 7.3 Server, connected to a network of Windows 2000 & XP Machines. I want to configure Samba to be the Domain Controller for my other machines. Before I was getting an error on a old copy of Samba (2.2.2a i think), then I upgraded to 2.2.11, and when I run the smbpasswd -j domainname , I get this error:

>I want Samba to be the domain controller,

Then why do you want it to join its own domain?
You just need to have domain logons = yes  for a domain controler and 
domain master = yes if this is the primary domain controler (which is 
the case, if this is the first, or the only one domain controler on your 
And then join the clients to this newly created domain.

> I don't want to have samba rely on Windows2k as the domain controller, so this is why I don't have it set Security = Domain. If anyone can please provide me with some very helpful information or a small working config file, please do.
