Yes, winbindd is running. I assume this has to be done on the Samba
machine; no such options (join, testjoin, etc) exist on the Win2k
PC. I ran, on the Samba machine, both <test join> and <test join
PDC> (as I have the Samba set for being a PDC), and the commands
claimed success at completion, and net rpc testjoin returned "Join to
'ASTRA_ENT' is ok." However, both joins also gave the message
:"ads_connect: Transport endpoint is not connected." I'm assuming
(hoping) that's because I'm not running ADS.
However, <smbclient //server/share -U user> still returns the
NT_STATUS_NETWORK_NAME error, and <wbinfo -u> and <wbinfo -g> both
return the same errors as above. And when I try to get my Win2k PC
to join the domain (My Computer|Properties|Network ID tab|Properties)
I get the credentials conflict, whether I use my root|passwd or a
Windows' Admin|passwd authentication. And I still can't connect to
any of the three shares--same NT_STATUS_NETWORK_NAME errors.
There is some progress, though; <nmblookup -B <server> __SAMBA__ now
returns the correct answer.
What else do I need to look for? I assume I still need to get the PC
to join the domain, but how?
Thanks for your help.
There is no nonsense so errant that it cannot be made the creed of
the vast majority by adequate governmental action.
