Hi There,

I've searched and searched.  Then searched some more.  Came up with
nothing.  So here I am.

I installed Samba as a PDC as per the HowTo, here:


Thing is: The workgroup isn't coming out right:

    $ smbclient -L localhost -U%
    Domain=[MYDOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 4.1.6-Ubuntu]

            Sharename       Type      Comment
            ---------       ----      -------
            IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba 4.1.6-Ubuntu)
            sysvol          Disk   
            netlogon        Disk  
    Domain=[MYDOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 4.1.6-Ubuntu]

            Server               Comment
            ---------            -------

            Workgroup            Master
            ---------            -------
            WORKGROUP            MYHOST


    $ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
            workgroup = MYDOMAIN
            realm = mydomain.com
            netbios name = MYHOST
            server role = active directory domain controller
            dns forwarder =

            path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/mydomain.com/scripts
            read only = No

            path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
            read only = No

Can somebody lend me a Clue?
