Kerberos/Winbind/Samba membership lost on boot
(winbind and samba-common version 2:3.2.5-4lenny14)

Hello, I am using Debian with Kerberos and winbind/samba to run a file server that gets its usernames and passwords from our primary Windows domain controller. Everything works well, with one exception--the system loses its domain membership when it is restarted. Every time I restart the machine, I can only log on as root.

Then I run


wbinfo -u
The users from the PDC are not found.

I run the following commands:


net ads join -U fritz

After that, wbinfo -u returns the list of users correctly. I can then use my domain account to log on to the Debian machine, and my users can use their domain credentials to access the Samba shares, which is exactly what I want.

How can I change this so the domain is automatically joined when the Debian machine is rebooted? Thanks in advance.
