Manage Shared Folder Permissions from Domain - Error with SeDiskOperatorPrivilege


I ingressed my openSUSE into a Windows domain, and everything is working fine (using YAST w SSSD).

So now I want to be able to manage my shares (subfolders) permissions using a DOMAIN/Adm account. To do that, I found out that I need to grant SeDiskOperatorPrivilege to it (right?).
Problem is, with

net rpc rights grant "WINDOMAIN\Administrator" SeDiskOperatorPrivilege -U "WINDOMAIN\Administrador"

I got

Connection failed: NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVER

I searched for this error, but couldn’t find a solution yet, since most of ppl were saying it was a DNS problem, but I’m into the domain, I can ping other machines by name, my DNS is the DNS server as well and I can even login with domain credentials…

Any help would be apreciated.

Hello and, welcome to this Forum.

The error is indicating that, the ADS Logon Server can not be found.

BTW, I note that, you’ve been using the archived Leap 15.0 documentation – For Leap 15.3 please use the documentation here – <>.

Hello! Thanks! Gonna use the updated docs.

Yes, I can login with AD credentials:

Running “klist” shows a valid ticket as well.

Yes, but, the login indicates an error – “The login directory doesn’t exist” …

  • Which is possibly related to the “Active Domain Logon Server not found
    ” error.

Are you certain that, the server’s IP address has been correctly set-up?

  • Also the IPv6 address …

I thought this message was caused by not enabling “Create Home Directory” at SSSD settings. It’s Ok to let if off, right?

User Logon Management

User Logon Management -> Auth Settings -> SSSD

Network Settings


Where should I check for misconfiguration? Idk where to look other than these…


The machine isn’t a member of a Network Domain – the complete host name, including the Network Domain, isn’t resolvable.

BTW, AFAIK, attempting to use Windows 10 or later without IPv6 isn’t a good idea …

Right… I left Domain, and tried to join again:
“No DNS domain configured”, but following the docs, I entered my DNS server IP at “Name Server 1” before joining… am i missing something? :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s because I only have an IPv4 DHCP server…

The Server’s IP address ain’t a Domain.

  • The Domain Name Server must have a Domain Name configured pointing to the Domain where the Names are being served.

So, new error :expressionless:

search mydomain.local

users auth

btw I checked DNS server records and if the machine appeared on DC, just to be sure


any idea what should I check for?

Nope. Not working.

Reinstalled the system, I did nothing but followed the docs (15.3). Joined domain succefully, IP, DNS server, domain name, domain controller, everything looks fine as far as I can tell, both on openSUSE and DC records.
Can’t login with domain creds, and sure can’t grant permissions.

Since I can’t find a sollution, or if it’s fixable at all, I think I’m done.
Anyway, thanks for helping @dcurtisfra.


The “NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED” error when trying to connect to the Localhost is this Samba error – <>
[HR][/HR]BTW, is ‘/etc/resolv.conf’ as follows?

The IPv6 Name Server address is being setup by DHCP at boot from the Name Server – it’s not being setup in ‘/etc/sysconfig/network/config’ …


Added the bind as the troubleshoot suggest, now the error is again like this:

Could not connect to server
Connection failed: NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVER

My /etc/resolv.conf

The IPv6 Name Server address is being setup by DHCP at boot from the Name Server – it's not being setup in ‘/etc/sysconfig/network/config’ …

Sorry, what this means? My DHCP server is providing IPv4 only. The /network/config is ok with those lines.

Then, it will not configure an IPv6 address by means of DHCP.
[HR][/HR]There seems to be something basically wrong with the way that the openSUSE system is accessing the Windows Domain.

  • Do commands such as “findsmb” and “nmblookup” return sensible results?
