Can't join Windows 2000 domain using net ads join
 
Hi all,

Iím trying to change the Windows server to Linux. Iím using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS with Samba 3.02. Security is ads so the server is a domain server. The good thing is I had it working where as windows could see the share files and Ubuntu could see the windows files.

I started downloading files into the share directory and started setting up permission. I rebooted the server and now I can not join the domain using net ads join. I can join using RPC but share donít work.

I can see my domain users and groups using wbinfo. I using Windows2k in native mode and Realm is pointing to the domain.

The error is net usershare error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID.

Found more information on this issue. Windows 2k and up do not send a SID for group ďEveryoneĒ. But something in Samba is asking for that SID. Before win 2k anonymous SID was use (or was there) in group ďEveryoneĒ. I think I may have added an additional part of Samba (for putting domain group into the group gui) and reboot that cause this problem.
