I have a Samba PDC with an LDAP backend. Yesterday, I tried to add a new
machine to the network and received the following message:
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain:
The password of this user has expired
Not a problem I thought, and then ran
smbldap-usermod -e "2010-12-30 00:00:00" root
to extend the password date. If I now try to connect a machine with the root
account I receive an error "user doesn't exist". If I go to a machine that's
already connected to the network and log in as root it lets me in and I can
see root's home directory and access the shares.
I have the ldif file backed up so I can restore myself back to the initial
state whenever I like. Any suggetions would be gratefully received regarding
how I can get around this one.
Thanks in advance,
