I think I have the DNS issue I had licked from the other day. Now I am attempting to join a W2K machine to the domain. I have gone through the tutorials on configuring SAMBA to mimic an NT PDC as well as have created the user and machine accounts in smbpasswd. When I attempt to join the machine to the domain I get the error "The domain you are requesting could not be located".
When I do an nslookup from the W2K machine I get a response of
I do not receive an IP address just the name response. What I am wondering here is do I still have something misconfigured in my zone records or should I be looking for something in my smb.conf for this?
In the smb.conf file should the domain be the netbios domain name or the FQDN? Meaining "mydomain" as opposed to "mydomain.home" I am unable to post the contents of my smb.conf or zone files as I am at work now, but if needed I could post them later this evening. I have attempted to do searches on this topic but have not located anything of use either on the forum or using google. So any help would be appreciated.
Originally posted by david_ross I think you are getting somewhat confused with the term domain. Your PDC domain name has nothing to do with DNS.
Can you post a copy of smb.conf
I see what you are saying there. That is where I am getting a bit confused. So when the machine states that it is unable to find the domain "mydomain.home" that it is not finding a PDC with that domain correct? I will get you a copy of my smb.config file later today when I get access to the machine. Thanks for the help.
