Now, setting up my fedora server as a member to be the file server is the
same process or can I add it another way?  Is the cockpit-ad-dc app usable
for this activity?  Or do I need to do this on my Fedora server (FSDC02):

  1. systemctl stop samba
  2. systemctl stop smb
  3. ps ax | egrep "samba|smbd|nmbd|winbindd"
  4. kill anything that is running above
  5. mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf-202110081030
  6. rm /etc/krb5.conf
  7. for file in `locate *.ldb`;do rm -rf $file;done
  8. for file in `locate *.tdb`;do rm -rf $file;done
  9. samba-tool domain provision --server-role=dc --use-rfc2307
--dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL --realm=TEST-SERVER.LAN --domain=DC02
10. Follow the rest of the steps in the wiki I've been using.

Just doing this won't connect the two right?  I'll still need to join

I guess I should use this.

In all things, Be Intentional.
