Problem Samba/Winbind talking to Windows Network

So here is what I’m trying to do: I want to have the winbind running with Samba and talking to the Windows domain on the network so that I can have users login to the SUSE server using the WINDOWS login, not a seperate LINUX login.

Here is how far I got:

  • Both SMBD and WINBINDD are up an running.

#net rpc join -U Administrator
Enter Administrator’s password:
Joined mynet

#net rpc info -U Administrator
Enter Administrator’s password:
Domain Name: mynet
Domain SID: S-1-5-21-8942493-347328-8282314
Sequence number: 12
Num users:120
Num domain groups: 24
Num local groups: 34

#wbinfo -g
BUILTIN administrators

#wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret via RPC calls succeeded

#wbinfo -u
CORPSVN svnadmin

But here is where things don’t look good:

#wbinfo -a mynet+dryan%mypass
plaintext password authentication failed
Could not authenticate user mynet+dryan with plaintext password challenge/response password authentication failed
error code was NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
error message was: No such user
Could not authenticate user mynet+dryan with challenge/response

In the winbindd.log:

  • winbindd/winbindd_util.c:trustdom_recv(269)
    Could not receive trustdoms

Using Firefox to connect to smb://{WINDOWS IP} fails to connect as well.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is any other info you want to see?

Any guidence or help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all!



I was able to fix the problem by adding the DNS server as the “NAME SERVER”.

I guess that step was missed , now things are working much better.

I’m sorry, but… where i should to set DNS server as “NAME SERVER” ? Is this “smb.conf” file or other ?
