My apologies (again!) for asking about this old, venerable release.
The client is upgrading to 4.10 or 4.11 in early December.
The AIX server was joined to a functional Windows 2000 domain in 2015.
The AD server has since been upgraded to functional Windows Server 2003
They have 2 AD servers - primary is Joe, secondary is Jane.
Joe has encountered severe Registry issues and needs to be taken offline.
The /etc/resolv.conf and smb.conf were updated to point to Jane; inetd was
The AIX server will no longer allow Samba share access.
Change everything back to Joe, we're good to go again.
While everything is set for Joe:
net ads leave -U administrator%password says ads is not built in.
net rfc leave -U administrator%password says leave is unknown.
If we were to delete the member from AD, we can't join it (as ads isn't
built in this version).
I think this pushes them into advancing the timetable on their Samba
Is there anything else to be tried if they can't push up the schedule?
