I am trying to setup samba as a PDC of a newly created domain.
I read about it here:
unfortunately I am not using samba 10.1 or ubuntu 7.1
I am using opensuse 10.3
Anyway I think I walked across almost all problem, and I also used to join
a windows xp workstation to the domain, WITHOUT having to create the
The problem is that if i logon to the xp as root everything is OK; but
if I try to logon with another samba account I get strange errors (see at
the bottom about this...)
Moreover: If I issue a "net user" command at the pdc, I see only root and
The same if I try to add a member to a group in the "manage group" of the
windows xp workstation.
If I issue getent passwd :
request done: ld 0x8054918 msgid 1
root:x:0:0:Netbios Domain Administrator:/home/root:/bin/false
request done: ld 0x8054918 msgid 2
request done: ld 0x8054918 msgid 3
(andrea is the user I tried to add using smbldap-useradd command)
If I use ldapsearch -x -b dc=my,dc=domain | grep andrea
# andrea, Users, gas.it
The "Strange error" I see is (translated)
Could not log on due to the following error
a device connected to the system is not working
If I issue a "smbpasswd andrea" and give apassword, then I go
a little further, but I get a policy error on the windows xp.
Any help will be gratly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
