Uh, I must be missing something here. This is a pretty straightforward set-up,
right? You want to join this Samba box to a Win2k3 server for file- or
print-serving purposes? I've always felt that you get a basic set-up working
first, then start to get fancy.
1. kinit Administrator at MYDOMAIN.COM
(You'll be prompted for a password. My systems simply return me to a prompt
if I'm successful.)
2. net ads join -U Administrator at MYDOMAIN.COM
(Again, you'll be prompted for a password. Info about the machine joining the
AD is returned)
Beyond this, someone else will have to help out.
