    Domain Controller Problems


    I have recently installed samba and configured it correctly in order to make it a primary domain controller. When i try to connect to the network I get the following error:

    Access Denied.

    When I join the domain, I try to join as: root.

    Is there another user I use to gain access and join the Domain?

    Or do i need to give a user certain permissions? How?

    Thanks in advance!

    1) It's a VERY BAD IDEA to use root as a Samba user.

    2) Did you any users to samba user file (ie: with smbpasswd command)?

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
