The latter link says, "Log on to a Windows machine as Domain Administrator".
Um, but if the Windows machine is not yet part of this new domain, how do I log in as domain administrator?
For MOST Windows Clients, you can (as mpfister showed above) open the System Properties control panel, go to the Name Tab (in Advanced, if you've got a newer Windows) and change the default "workgroup" to your Domain.
You'll be prompted for your domain name (set in your file), a Domain Admin user name (defined in your file), and that Domain Admin's password (as set - most likely - by the smbpasswd command).
The point being that, before you can start joining systems to the Samba PDC, you have to add at least 1 user account in the Samba user database, that user has to have a Samba Password (highly unusual to configure Samba to use the Linux user password file!
), and that user has to be defined as a Domain Admin in the file.
The client came back up and asked for its old IP address. ) dns entries it's safe to replace, and which need to stay ?Unlike most other IT engineers, I live by the policy of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" -- and that means that I still have servers running the likes of Linux 2.4 kernels & Windows 2000!(Broke, to me, means that there is something you want the system to do that it cannot do now, but that a new version will presumably fix. Dan IT4SOHO Squarespace’s all-in-one platform gives you everything you need to express yourself creatively online, whether it is with a domain, website, or online store.Anyway, it would be nice to have some hooks for alternate ways of dealing with this. I am trying to configure a Linux Debian host to be a Primary Domain Controller which will have Windows hosts in the domain.
