It OpenSUSE 11.2

Here's my setup:

Server IP Address:
Client IP Address:

On the client, I can ping the server without problem, and DNS is working perfectly, I test this by a NSLOOKUP and it works!

I reach into my AD and I see the users, but when I create a new user it tells me my error. (I can still create and enter the session but with errors of course .. and I can not apply Group Policy ..!)

Thank you for your help!

Which distribution ?

Have you a static ip configuration  ?

In your Windows client, ping your server to check dns configuration

my /etc/hosts file

/etc/hosts : localhost srvsmb4.domgc.iut-nimes.fr srvsmb4
