Thread: net join failed

  1. #1

    Question net join failed

    Im using openSuSE 11.0 and got following problem.
    When I use the command

    net ads join -U Administrator

    and enter the proper password i get the message

    Failed to join domain: failed to find DC for domain NOACK.LOCAL

    If i use the command

    net ads lookup dc

    i get the proper data from the dc.

    Anybody got any idea what the problem could be?
    Im looking forward to your suggestions.
    Regards,
    Markus

    This sounds like the following Samba Bug.

    BUG 5570: Fix bogus error message during AD domain join.

    You might wish to check this at www.samba.org. This is suppose to be fixed in
    the code for 3.2.1. The Suse RPM's are out for 3.2.1 and are on the Mirrors
    (Samba Stable).

    Thanks for your reply.
    I can only find the samba-doc rpm at ftp.suse.com (pub/projects/samba/STABLE/noarch/).
    Is there any other location to get the rpm?

    Did you ever find a solution for this?

    I have the exact same problem installing Suse11... net ads lookup dc finds the domain controller correctly, but net join reports unable to find DC.

    I think I've got this to work now... I cranked up the debug level and saw messages about not being able to find myserver.mydomain in the DNS. (It is there, host has no problem finding it, not do other machines on the network). But I added both my netbios name and the dns name (in all caps) to my hosts file, after which net join worked ok.

    Shouldn't be necessary, but at least it worked. I suspect a case-sensitivity issue somewhere... my dns entries are all lowercase, but netbios and ads domains seems to want uppercase.
