Hi all,

I need to add a windows nt4 (sp6a) server to our samba-4.1.6 active 
directory. I installed nt4 as a 'stand alone server'. So far it doesn't

If I create a computer account manually, and do not check 'create a 
computer account in the domain', I get:
- unable to contact the domain controller for this domain. Have your

So, before trying all kinds of stuff...: Is this (adding an nt4 server 
as a 'regular client') still supposed to work with recent samba4?

Kind regards,
