I've posted this many time on the samba list server and openldap list server but I still am unable to fix this problem, so I look for clues.
I am not able joind a Windows 2000 computer to a Samba domain. I get an error message logon failure: unknown username or bad password.
WHAT DOES WORK:
Can logon to domain from a Windows 95/98 and get mapped drive to home directory, netlogon on share.
After logging into local machine on Windows 2000 computer, I can browse the network, find the domain controller where it prompts me for a username and password. It accept the password and allows me to get to the shares that are allowed for my account.
I can also change passwords.
WHAT THIS IMPLIES:
This implies that samba is communicating correctlly with the backend db. It also implies that samba is using the LDAP admin account for access to the LDAP directory correctly.
The error messages I get appears to be the result of samba mapping to the root account or the password for the root account..
There was a posting on the Samba lists that said you must, Must, MUST have a samba account named root. That poster said to do:
smbpasswd -a root
and put in a password different from root's Linux password. During the procedure to join the domain you are asked for a user who has the rights to join the domain. Enter root as the user and the password you set up.
There was also a step-by-step on how to do LDAP. Here, too, you needed to have a samba user called root with a UID of 0 and a rid of 1000. This was done with a: smbldap-useradd.pl -a -P root. Then use GQ to change the rid and UID.
