Please check:

1 - that your nsswitch.conf file is correctly configured. 

2 - use klist to verify the tokens are A ok, if not kinit to refresh.

3 - verify that the server joined the domain as a regular mcomputer and
not a DC.

4 - check that the DNS related things are all correct: windows DNS,
linux hosts file,lmhosts, wins (if used) etc.

5 - verify AD is set to Mixed Mode.

Please post your smb.conf...

Subject: [Samba] Samba and AD: Strange problem with connection


I have BIG problem with samba and Active Directory.

Usually it can't get sid... But sometimes it works.... And it can
connect to AD. Until restart....

net rpc getsid;
Unable to find a suitable server

sometimes it gets.... -->
Storing SID S-1-5-21-232394995-2236763843-2194921025 for Domain SBSMENIS
in secrets.tdb

I have to make many tries to join to AD... And then it works... Until

samba                  3.0.24-2ubuntu1.2
winbind                3.0.24-2ubuntu1.2
libkrb53                                   1.4.4-5ubuntu3.1

this is in /var/log/samba/log.winbindd  when i try get sid

[2007/09/07 18:46:34, 0] nsswitch/winbindd_util.c:init_domain_list(518)
Could not fetch our SID - did we join?
[2007/09/07 18:46:34, 0]
nsswitch/winbindd.c:main(1051) unable to initalize domain list
