Im going to try and be as detailed as possible here.
I am currently running a network of about 100 computers on a windows 2000 server domain. After getting sick and tired of Mr. Gates BS, Ive decided that its time to start moving over to a Linux/Unix enviroment. I decided that the first server to start running linux would be one that is not yet in production. I installed Slackware linux 9.1 on the machine and everything went just fine. I setup samba 3 on the box and setup my smb.conf. Now I need to be able to allow the linux server to map users and groups from active directory. I found out that the way to do this, is to use winbindd. I followed the instructions for setting up winbindd (modified /etc/nsswitch.conf and smb.conf). I tried to join the domain using smbpasswd -j (DOMAINNAME) -r (PDCNAME) -U (USERNAME) and the computer told me to use the net join command instead. After reading the man for net and playing around a bit. I was able to join the domain by typing the following net join (DOMAINNAME) -U Administrator. It did however give me an error before prompting for a password.
[2003/12/30 12:24:38, 0] param /loadparm.c:map_parameter(2422)
Unknown parameter encountered: "ssl CA certDir"
[2003/12/30 12:24:38, 0] param /loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3150)
Ignoring unknown parameter "ssl CA certDir"
When I typed the password in, it told me that I had joined the domain successfully. The next thing the winbindd man told me to do was to start winbindd. So I went to a prompt and typed winbindd and it took it happily, did not display any error or success messages but simply displayed another promt. However when I checked the home folder, my 2000 server active directory users were not there.
Has anyone ever done this before??? Can anyone provide any clues, what am I missing?
