Problem with Active Directory Login Gnome OpenSuse 12.1 64-Bit

Hello,

edit: the problem only occurs if I set offline authentication!

using YaST2 I added a an OpenSuSE 12.1 64-Bit with Gnome machine to a Windows 2008 Active Directory domain.

My problem is: whenever I enter a new username into the Gnome login menu, it hangs forever until I press cancel.
If I do the exact same thing a second time, then the login works fine, with home folders etc.

I don’t have this problem using SSH.

Here is an excerpt of /var/log/messages

Sep 13 11:50:57 fhnueserver3 gdm][3643]: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): getting password (0x00000390)
Sep 13 11:50:57 fhnueserver3 gdm][3643]: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): pam_get_item returned a password
Sep 13 11:50:57 fhnueserver3 gdm][3643]: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): user ‘MKE.COM est’ granted access

  • At this point it hangs until I press cancel. Then I try it again and it works right away.

Sep 13 11:59:09 fhnueserver3 gdm][3651]: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): getting password (0x00000390)
Sep 13 11:59:09 fhnueserver3 gdm][3651]: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): pam_get_item returned a password

Sep 13 11:59:09 fhnueserver3 gdm][3651]: pam_winbind(gdm:account): user ‘MKE est’ granted access
Sep 13 11:59:09 fhnueserver3 systemd-logind[671]: New user MKE est logged in.

OK unfortunately it also occurs with offline authentication disabled.

Is your domain named something.local, perhaps?

Ah. Then I assume your domain is a registered, true domain in Internet. If not → problems.
