I have been running a small domain for years. I finally decided to move
the domain to ad. I am also upgrading the server from Ubuntu i6.04 LTS
to 18.04 LTS
I installed the new server on a new RAID array and loaded the Ubuntu
LAMP stack. I installed samba. I have gone through a few tutorials which
offer differing recommendation on some things. All were based on either
Debian or Ubuntu.
I seem to have successfully provisioned the DC but I cannot contact the
The /etc/krb5.conf contains:
> default_realm = ORLEANS.STEINMETZNET.COM
> dns_lookup_realm = false
> dns_lookup_kdc = true
kinit returns server not found.
> $ kinit administrator at ORLEANS.STEINMETZNET.COM
> kinit: Cannot find KDC for realm "ORLEANS.STEINMETZNET.COM" while
> getting initial credentials
Some of the other suggested test seem to work but give somewhat
different results than the examples, particularly the smbclient tests.
I've searched around the net for a solution but haven't come up with one
Can I simply remove the Samba database files and re-provision the DC?
