I have created a domain controller using samba 3.0.20.
I following howto's from a couple of books and the samba.org site.
I was able to use net rpc vampire to migrate the old nt4 domain user
accounts, machine accounts, and trusts.
However, now when I attempt to use add a new machine to the domain I
receive and error. From windows I get:
"The user name could not be found"
When I look at the samba log file I see
"... running the command useradd .. gave 5" (I've abbreviated the
script since it follows the how tos)
I didn't know what the 'gave 5' meant. I assume it means that useradd
failed. Looking at /etc/passwd does indeed show that there was no
machine account created.
I looked in the man page but I don't see what any documentation on
error codes returned by useradd.
I have run net group map and verified that "Domain Admins" maps to the
unix group ntadmins. The windows users is a member of both "Domain
Admins" and ntadmins.
Where else should I look?
