* Lists itself as a PDC
* Lists itself as a LMB
* No ADMIN$ IPC share listed (Is this normal?)
I am unsure as how to check the Admin domain accounts on the server.
2 user accounts (for now) asc1 asc2
on computers ascoffice1.lefty ( and ascoffice2.lefty (
server is earth.lefty (
DHCP, BIND set up correctly (AFAICT) i can ping host names from earth
and ascoffice1
WINS is also set up.

earth:~# nmblookup -M asc
querying asc on asc<1d>

earth:~# smbclient -L earth -U asc1
Enter asc1's password:

I have been trying to work through this over the last month with no
success, we move office next week and I need this system going by
Any hints however small I am grateful for, Something that might be
obvious to a seasoned user might be what is tripping me up.


24x7x365 != 24x7x52 Stupid or bad maths?
<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to
ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my
apartment it is.
