Did I bring our domain down with this?
I think that changed yesterday.
Set up Debian linux(not server), installed php,mysql,apache2,and Samba.
What happened: folks in our single domain lost the ability to log into A/D etc
What fixed it: netdom resetpwd, restart of PDC(linux box shut off)
Dunno if this is enough info to make an armchair judgement or not..
I guess I'm asking , can a Samba config done incorrectly cause debian box to act as the PDC?
Hi and welcome
Theoretically yes, but only if you edited smb.conf before starting samba.
Afaik, if you set domain master = yes and if the OS level is high enough, then the clients will ask the samba server instead of your AD.
By default, a samba server will "loose" the election against an AD.
Gratulations on the (near) zero failure rate.
Cant claim the same for myselfYou must always face the curtain with a bow.
huh, the mystery deepens..
thanks much for the reply via Germania!
I just did a search for smb.conf
found 3 or so
1 on /etc/samba
another in /usr/....
The one in /etc/samba contains a line that says:
domain logons = yes
Did I shoot myself in the foot with that line?
Possible. Because domain logons = yes implies that samba will act as a pdc.
I just checked on a debian VM, by default domain logons is commented out.
Btw, the active config is in /etc/samba/smb.conf.
The one in /usr/share/... is for documentation purposes.
