Yes I searched, I tried fixes, I pulled my hair out and finally gave in.
New Windows 7 desktop trying to join a domain happily service XP clients
from Samba 3.5.10 on Centos 6.3.
I've applied the registry fix from
and rebooted, no joy.
I've tried nikonz' changes from
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/75-63-windows-samba-issue with no joy.
Each time I try to have the machine join the domain, I get the following
in the machine specific error log:
[2012/11/22 15:28:45.189030, 0] lib/util_sock.c:474(read_fd_with_timeout)
[2012/11/22 15:28:45.189331, 0]
getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected
read_fd_with_timeout: client 0.0.0.0 read error = Connection reset by
followed by the message:
"The join operation was not successful. This could be because an
existing computer account having the name "MACHINENAME" was previously
created using a different set of credentials. Use a different computer
name, or contact your administrator to remove any stale conflicting
account. The error was:
Access is denied."
How can I get Windows 7 to play nice and join in with the domain?
