Samba as PDC
Hi I'm trying to setup a small test network with Samba as a Primary Domain Controller (PDC) for Windows boxs to connect to it. I'm kind new to Linux and don't know where I am going wrong.
I've read and trying to setup Samba to do the PDC role. Below is the 'global' section of the smb.conf file.
[global] workgroup = 1domain server string = printing = cups printcap name = cups printcap cache time = 750 cups options = raw map to guest = Bad User logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile logon drive = P: usershare allow guests = No add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$ domain logons = Yes domain master = Yes security = user netbios name = test local master = Yes os level = 65 preferred master = Yes wins support = yes debug level = 2 dns proxy = yes time server = yes
But when I go to join the domain (1domain) I get the following error message.
"The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "1domain". The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Rebooted the Linux box to confirm all settings/Samba was active with new settings then when I try to join the Domain I get that above error message.
I am running openSUSE 11.0.
Does anyone know any good tutorials I should have a read of on how to do what I am after, for beginners or can you provide any help with what else I might need to do or where I am going wrong.
Thanks in advanced.

Have you had a look at the worked examples in the "offical samba how-to"?
