So you join to an existing domain!?
Be shure you put the name of the existing ads-domain-dns in your

This could be an issue.

Betreff: [Samba] samba4.1.4 samba-tool fails to join domain

      The /opt/samba-4.1.4/lib/python2.6/site-packages/samba does exist and
the param.so file is there. So not sure why it is complaining that it cannot
find that module????


     I have compiled and installed samba with no errors on OmniOS
151.008j-r1.  Reading the following wiki to join to an existing AD domain:


All steps go through with out any issues until I run:

bin/samba-tool domain join engr.colostate.edu DC -Uadministrator
--realm=engr.colostate.edu --dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ

I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bin/samba-tool", line 33, in <module>
     from samba.netcmd.main import cmd_sambatool
"/opt/samba-4.1.4/lib/python2.6/site-packages/samba/__init__.py", line 27,
in <module>
     import samba.param
ImportError: No module named param

I cannot find the samba.param file in the samba install folder anywhere. 
  Looking like something didn't go right during the install?

I did just basic configure command:
./configure --prefix=/opt/samba-4.1.4
make install
