[Samba] Joining an 2003 AD

Here is what I'm saying (and one thing I forgot to include):
/etc/hosts has the line = 127.0.1.1 BMSK12LTSP.BOLIVAR.EDU
/etc/hostname = BMSK12LTSP
server string in smb.conf = BMSK12LTSP
Your Active Directory fully qualified domain MUST be BOLIVAR.EDU
That's what I'm saying. If you fix these, I suspect it will work.

If that is all this is I'm going to shoot myself. What if you don't have either one defined? Or only one defined, because I don't think I have an entry in my hosts for my server, aside from the localhost.localhost localhost entry. And it is on the internal NIC for the LTSP, 192.168.0.254 I think, I'm not in front of the server right now.
> Don, are you saying that despite putting in both you still get this error? If this actually works I'm going to add it to the how-to I've got and send it back to the writer. I don't think it was needed when he wrote it, and like I said I got it to work the first time. I don't think I updated Samba that time, either that or I had the entry's in both and didn't know it. Thanks for the info. I'm going to give it a try in the morning and let you know if it worked.
