We can not get our Windows XP Pro workstation to join Samba 3 running on
RHLE4 configured as a PDC. We are running Samba 3.0.10-1.4E.9.
We have done the following:
. configured the smb.conf. A copy of it is below:
workgroup = RUCLASERVICES
netbios name = RUCLASERVICES
server string = rs-svr1
passdb backend = smbpasswd:/etc/samba/smbpasswd
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
logon script = logon.bat
logon path = \\%L\home\%U\profile
logon drive = H:
logon home = \\%L\home\%U\data
domain logons = Yes
os level = 33
domain master = Yes
hosts allow = 192.168.0., 127.
. We have added the root password to smbpasswd.
. DNS is working fine because we can ping the netbios name of the client
pc from the server and vice versa.
. We have run the tests in the SAMBA manual using teh smbclient and
nmblookup commands and they have passed successfully.
When we try to join the domain from the workstation we enter the NETBIOS
name for the DOMAIN. We then get the prompt for the username and
password for an account that has permissions to join teh domain. We
enter that username and password for the "root" account on the SAMBA
server. It then comes back several seconds later with the message:
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain
"RUCLASERVICES": The username could not be found.
We have had no luck figuring out why this is the case. Can anyone tell
us if we are leaving out a step?
