Exclamation ERROR joining Linux to Active Directory


Hi all,
I am trying join a fedora 12 to Windows Domain. My server is WIN server 2008 SPk2.

Client Details

OS:fedora 12
IP and Nameserver configured to point WIN server
Clinet to server connection is available.
Client can ping to server and dig the domain aswell.
Samba is configured as:

realm = TEST.COM
security = ads

Now when i try to join my Linux Client to Domain I get the error as

"
Using short domain name -- TEST
Joined 'LINUX' to realm 'test.com'
[......date......]libads/kerberos.c:332(ads_kinit_password)
kerberos_kinit_password LINUX$@TEST.COM failed:Clock skew too great
[......date......]utils/net_ads.c:1080(net_update_dns_internal)
net_update_dns_internal:Failed to connect to our DC!
DNS update failed!

"

any idea what is happening . I have configured Winbind.

First of check whether your linux box clock is exectly as your dc has as if you see the error message again you will see this line:
"kerberos_kinit_password LINUX$@TEST.COM failed:Clock skew too great"

Thus first of figure out this because if I take the example of any windows client machine which also has same clock skew issue I will not able to join my machine with DC for this I have to manually make adjustment of clock of windows client machine with my DC server clock.
Also look into /var/messages it will also shed the light on this issue more clearly.

Hope this will solve your problem.
