[Samba] Problem joining domain [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi Rowland

No tombstonelifetime.

Do I need to upgrade the schema? The current schema is 30 (Windows 2003).

When I try to update the schema, I get the following error:

Applying Sch31.ldf updates...
Exception [Errno 2] No such file or directory 

I downloaded sch31.ldf and tried to apply that.

samba-tool domain schemaupgrade --ldf-file=sch31.ldf --base-dir=/home/user/work/ldif

Unable to find attribute 1.2.840.113556. in the schema. 
Exception: unable to parse LDIF string at first chunk

Not sure if I'm barking up the wrong tree.

OK, it seems to be saying that you do not have a 'tombstoneLifetime' 
attribute, try running this on the DC:

ldbsearch --cross-ncs -H ldap://julius -b 'CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=ssunit050,DC=local' -s base -U Administrator

It should display the entire AD object, is 'tombstoneLifetime' amongst the output ?
