    How to add win7 to samba pdc?

    How to add win7 to samba pdc?

    ok so I can ping the server that has the samba on it from the windows 7 box. I can also see the shares from the samba on the windows 7 box. I can get the box to show up to add it to the samba pdc but the domain join erros out. added the screen shots and samba log files.

    server name of samba computer is Therese
    computer with win7 is momhp

    terminal shows
    lance@Therese:~$ smbclient -L localhost
    Enter lance's password:
    Domain=[LBERMUDEZ] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.8]

    Since no-one else seems to answer, I'll tell you the little I know:
    - You need to set your PDC as DNS Server in your Network
    - You need to have a DNS Server installed on your PDC (don't know if it is integrated into Samba yet, believe not)
    There's the need for some entries, which tell windows the Active Directory Server (Samba)
    - It is also needed to install kerberos ... but I guess that one is already integrated in Samba.

    So the first ting, to check would be the DNS.
    The secound is kerberos / windows

    But then I googled: "join windows 7 to samba pdc"
    outdated !! Join Windows 7 to Samba PDC on Ubuntu Jaunty - 1st Byte Solutions
    Use that one:

    And saw it's also possible to change the behavior of windows, so you don't need to do all the changed I just told you.
    Damn I'm tired!! Night
