I am testing w/ a PC loaded w/ Centos 5 and Samba (whatever version it
I have not had any luck with connecting WinXP clients to it (or anything
for that matter)
I think my problems stem from not joining the domain correctly.
What is the proper method for Win XP or WIn 2K . When I get a chance I
am gonna connect a PC to my test network.
To join a domain, you would need (at least for NT)
Name of Domain
Password for admin account
A unique Network Name for the PC.
And you typically (at least thru XP) right click on the Computer Icon, >
Properties > Network and Join the domain or change machine name to get on.
What do you do for Limux / Samba ???
root account, ???
root password ???
Uniique machine name ???
Do you try to join domain is same manner or is there a config file you
got to edit ???
Any help or advice is welcome.
