Thread: Samba PDC and Win XP Home

    Default Samba PDC and Win XP Home

    Is there any way to make Win XP Home authorisation in Samba PDC just like it were Win XP Professional?

    No. One of the limitations of XP Home is that it cannot join a domain.
    That applies regardless whether the DC is a Samba server or a "real"
    Windows one.

    You could try one of the hacks for enabling XP Pro functions in XP Home
    (also known as "XP Professional Light") but I don't know if that's
    legal in your legislation. Otherwise buying a Windows XP Professional
    license is your only option.

    It's the same, btw, between Vista Home and Vista Business.
