Yes In Official SAMBA HowTo document section 3.5.5 they have clearly stated that all users accounts should be created afterwords i.e. after samba server configuration.Otherwise samba will consider them as local account.
Thus I reinstalled server , then configured LDAP and samba with LDAP support first then added users accounts locally and samba accounts and machine trust accounts.
Then when I changed or configured Windows Xp i.e. changed the domain name bingo it went so smoothly it took new domain and then after the rebooting Xp It showed login window with the option of Domain log in and local machine log in
Thank you all guys and SAMBA TEAM for your reply and help.
If anyone wants step by step configuration, I'll post it on request.
Now with this We proudly declare this thread as SOLVED.
Hi there, i have configured my LDAP server on redhat6 and successfully authenticated other RedHat6 clients on it.
But when i try to authenticate windows XP users i get an error saying the domain controller cannot be contacted.I am able to authenticate using pgina but i wanted to be able to login using the default login window of XP.
I have also configured samba and edited the named.conf files along with forward and reverse zone configurations.
With named.conf file configured i get an error in XP client saying that
1. The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS
2. One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!
