Im trying out suse 11 and I’m having issues trying to get winbind to join my local domain at work. When I type in the password it needs to join… I just get error pop up > failed to find DC in Domain <
Do you have any solution yet? I have the same problem…
The solution is on your system Start Yast - Network Sercives - Windows Domain membership. Configure that, and you should be able to join the domain.

This might not help, but if you’re on a network void of Windows boxes on
the domain you’re trying to join, you won’t be able to automatically
find the DC.
You can always do the join by hand, as root:
net ads join -S ip-of-a-domain-dc -U id-with-domain-admin-privs
make sure you clock is in sync with a time source used in common with
the AD box.
I tried to do that, and still got an error message saying DC for the domain cannot be found.
Might there be something that needs to be done on the DC to allow Linux machines to join?
