Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

when I entered (net ads join -U administrator )command to join a linux machine to w2k3 Domain it returns an error result (ads_connect: No such file or directory)
this w2k3 server is the primary D.C with the dns,dhcp,wins,etc installed. Already i have manually entered this linux machine's account in the w2k3's Active Directory Users and Computers. how do i succeed to do this?
hello Musicman, thanks but the actually the "kinit Administrator@DOMAIN.COM" entry does not work in the first place. when i enter it and press enter, followed by password and press enter it returns an error saying:
kinit(v5): Clock skew too great while getting initial credentials
How do i get this fixed?
i suspected the clock sync as well. infact while on several attempt i got a another error somehow similar to the first,it says:
kinit(v5): Preauthentication failed while getting initial credentials
so how exactly do i get the clock synchronised
hey! musicman - mentioning your name here doesnt mean you're that special! whether you exist or not there will be posts in this board and there will continue to be responces to them - i mean you sounded quite irrational. thats not the right approach.
if your talking out my "I'm no redhat guru", I simply mean that I don't use YUM and RPM enough to troubleshoot or explain how to query the YUM database to find an NTPclient. Now I do compile from source for my own programs and several commercial ones, so I was offering an alternative since the command yum install ntpclient didn't work.
I understand I never had to attempt to answer and I know I'm nothing specail. I'm sorry I tried to help man.
yeah, i believe i've been able to join this Linux to the w2k3 domain (with net ads join -U administrator). becouse now i can see the Linux box in the windows machine, but the problem now is that when i double click it i cannot gain access to the Linux box. an error messages pops up saying:
\\LinuxBox is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found.
Ok;with WINBIND,KERBEROS,SAMBA,and PAM.D configured on the Linux box, as well as DNS running in the w2k3 D.C. I believe I need not re-create netework users account on the Linux/Samba machine before users can authenticate and access it.
So what remains to do for me to access this Linux box over the network?
