Mr Vernooij:

         I'm sorry to send this mail to your JABBER mailbox

         Here is the question:

         In our company we use ADS on Windows 2000 server as PDC and now I
want to setup a Samba Server and add it to the domain.

         So I run the following cmd:

         # net ads join -W <domain name> -S <PDC server name> -U

         Then it prompted me to input the password and I did, after that it
output the following errors:


         [2007/05/16 20:50:20, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(146)

       kerberos_kinit_password administrator at SH.JUNIPERCORP.COM.CN failed:
Can't open

/find Kerberos configuration file

[2007/05/16 20:50:20, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(191)

       ads_connect: Can't open/find Kerberos configuration file






Question 1: Why did that happen? Is it the problem of our PDC? Any advice?


Question 2: If I succeed, what does this command actually do? I've read the
manual page about it written by you but I'm sorry that I didn't get it.


I'll very appreciate if you reply

                  Best regards
