Samba as a Windows 2003 ADS member
I have a windows 2003 server running as the only domain controller in my small 8 node network.
The Domain is donovan.local
Windows Domain Controller is Baboon
Fedora 2 / Samba-3 box is Gorilla

I recently installed Fedora 2 on an extra machine

I set up samba and want to add the linux / samba machine to the ADS domain

# Global parameters
unix charset = LOCALE
workgroup = DONOVAN
server string = Samba 3.0.2
security = ADS
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
log level = 1
syslog = 0
log file = /var/log/samba/%m
max log size = 50
printcap name = CUPS
ldap ssl = no
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
template primary group = "Domain Users"
template shell = /bin/bash
winbind separator = +
printing = cups
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
read only = No
browseable = No
comment = SMB Print Spool
path = /var/spool/samba
guest ok = Yes
printable = Yes
browseable = No
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
admin users = root, Administrator
write list = root

# /etc/nsswitch.conf

passwd: compat winbind
group: compat winbind

hosts: files dns wins
networks: files dns

services: files
protocols: files
rpc: files
ethers: files
netmasks: files
netgroup: files
publickey: files

bootparams: files
automount: files
aliases: files

yes both of these files come almost exactly from the HOW TO EXAMPLE book by Terpstra.

[root@gorilla robert]# net ads join -UAdministrator%not24get

[2004/09/16 22:23:42, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(136)
kerberos_kinit_password Administrator@DONOVAN.LOCAL failed: Cannot find KDC for requested realm
[2004/09/16 22:23:42, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(183)
ads_connect: Cannot find KDC for requested realm

I am fully on the windows side of things and am very new to Linux in general.

any ideas where to start?

any other .conf files I need to configure?

Anything that might not be mentioned in the HOW TO

maybe a setting I am missing on the Windows server to accomidate Linux

thanks in advance
