Is there anything special about accounts ending in $?
I ask because I've just installed the whole of Samba 3.6 just to get the
net command to join a Linux box to a Samba 4 domain. Afterwards, the
machine will be using Samba 4 for authentication and filesharing with
win 7 clients. net ads join prepares a keytab with
host/fqdn at REALM
host/hostname at REALM
1. Can I have the net command without installing the whole of Samba?
2. Is this part of what happens during net ads join -Uxxx?
net ads keytab add hostname$
