I am using two virtualbox machines, one running XUbuntu 12.4 LTs and the other running a Windows XP as a testbed for implementing a Samba-based domain. The Linux machine is my PDC and the XP machine is the client. Samba uses LDAP as a backend.
The installation is almost successful and I managed to join my XP machine to the domain. Nevertheless when I try to log in using an existing user, I receive the following error in the Welcome screen:
The system cannot log you on now because the domain is not available
As I said before, the server and the client are both running on two virtualbox machines. After the installation of my server and joining the network, I can ping each machine from the other.
Samba version is 3.6.3
Does anyone have any idea what might be the problem? Do I need a gateway or DNS address? I am totally running out of ideas
I examined the messages exchanged between the two machines including TCP, SMB, NBNS and BROWSER but two caught my attention:
SMB session setup andx response ntlmssp_challenge error status_more_processing_required
TCP iad2 > netbios-ssn [RST, ACK] Seq=73 Ack=1 Win=0 Len=0 –
