Hi all,

I have run into a problem while trying to add an additional samba4 DC to
our AD.

I have installed Ubuntu Trusty and compiled samba4 from source
(Version 4.2.0pre1-GIT-0535f73).

I have been able to join the machine but when I start the service
I am unable to access SYSVOL or NETLOGON however samba and smbd
have been started.

22724 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22726 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22727 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22728 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D --option=server
role check:inhibit=yes --foreground
22729 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22730 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22731 ?        S      0:01 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22732 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22733 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22734 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22735 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22736 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22737 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22738 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
22741 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D --option=server
role check:inhibit=yes --foreground

I have checked if the directories actually exist and if the path
directives in smb.conf are correct.

I have tried to access those shares via a Windows machine and directly
on the CLI via smbclient.

bin/smbclient //localhost/netlogon -Utestuser
Enter testuser's password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND

Does anybody know what could be the cause of this issue ?

Thank you very much for your kind help

best regards
