I am trying to learn samba, ldap and co.
now I installed a test net consisting from three computers
haydn: this is the pdc with haydn.redcor.home (ip 10.168.1.102)
memphis: tis is a windows box -> memhis.redcor.home (ip 10.168.1.103)
chrissy: this is a unix box -> chrissy.redcor.home (ip 10.168.1.100)
dns server, ldap-server and samba are all running on haydn.
on haydn samba is running as pdc with a domain name HAYDN.
I could add memphis to the domain. but when I boot windows I get an err "this
name is alredy used in the network" (or some such, it is in german).
in the windows error log I find an error 4321 stating that the name 'HAYDN ':0
could not be registered with ip 10.168.1.102. ip 10.168.1.103 vetoed the use of
my real problem is: I could join the domain, but when I want to log into the
domain, I get an error stating that domain haydn could not be found.
is it not possible, that a machine name and a the domain name are the same?
thanks for your help
