Question Joining Ubuntu client to Samba LDAP domain


Hi,
I have an Centos 5.2, smbldap-tool, server working as a samba domain controller and about 300 XP clients. 3500 Users log in with username and password and have their profiles stored on the server and also can access their drives shares on the file servers (assuming they have permission to).

Now I want to add an Ubuntu client to the network so it works in the same way, ie user logs in and it loads the user profile from the server and accesses the samba shares with correct samba permissions. Any tips on doing this?

I take i just use the 'net rpc join' command to join the pc
but the error message occure like:-
"cannot join as standalone machine"

thanks in anticipations:-

Regards:

Make sure the domain for the linux system is the same as used in the ldap store. As I take it your aware windows uses domain in the dn to determine the auth pool for AD/LDAP auth services. The error that your showing looks the same as I have seen when that domain is not set in the dn searching for your systems auth perms.
