I'm trying to setup a standalone samba server named "alta" in a
workgroup named "TDOM". So I put
workgroup = TDOM
in the 'smb.conf' file. The netbios name of the machine defaults to
'ALTA' so no netbios name paramater is needed (I assume).
I've put the user and group accounts in an ldapsam backend and I also
created a sambaDomainName=TDOM,... . The user and groups have sid's in
that domain (sid = <TDOM-sid>-rid).
Now when I start the samba server it creates an extra entry
sambaDomainName=ALTA in de ldapsam backend, and no user can login
because the domain doesn't match. I suspect some idmap parameters could
be used to allow users to login, but the main problem is:
1. Why is a sambaDomainName=ALTA entry created while I specified a
workgroup of TDOM?
2. How do I avoid it? (if appropriate)
Some background information: I use samba-3.0.24 on debian/etch with an
openldap-2.3.32 backend. Eventually I want to setup a domain using a
samba PDC and BDC's, but with understanding the process in order to
obtain a robust setup.
