before you try to join the domain goto a command prompt on the windows machine and type:

net use * /delete

if this doesn't work please post your smb.conf

Im not sure if it worked or not because im not sure what it was ment to do!
Quote:
C:\>net use * /delete
You have these remote connections:

\\Oasis\IPC$
Continuing will cancel the connections.

Do you want to continue this operation? (Y/N) [N]: y
The command completed successfully.


C:\>
so heres my smb.conf aswell , its bit

Thanks for the help

the problem was pretty much what the error says.
you had typed \\oasis at the command prompt at some point and that session is remembered for X amount of time, it is known as the IPC$ share. using the net use * /delete command ends all sessions from that computer to any other computer.

The user that was logged into windows is the user for the IPC share. when you tried to contact the same server, oasis, with a different user name it gave you that error.

bottom line is you can not connect to or map a drive to A server with seperate usernames.

ok, so if i rebooted my comp. logged in as admin, and tried the domain thing straight away would that sort it out? also do i need to input a special user when it asks me for a user/password (im talking about when i goto "mycomp > network id" etc) or does the user need any special prlivages to be able to make my computer join the domain ?

thanks alot Ben

yes to your question, most likely windows keeps what they call MRUs in its registry, they remember UNC connections and for reasons only known to hackers and MS employees, it may access one from time to time.

in your smb.conf file you have
admin users = root
that means only root can join machines.

i just posted a link that shows you how to create machine accounts.

you can't join the samba domain unless there are machine trust accounts.

i am helping you here, you just need to listen/read
