Samba issue

dear all,
i dont know if its the right section to ask about Samba or not
just correct me this is my first time. actually i am using samba for file sharing and trying to join samba with Active directory it is successful though
via command "net ads join -U administrator"

however the problem is my hostname is "cat-raid" but the computer name which is created in "Activedirecotry user and compouters" is some thing other.
i double check the /etc/hostname file it showed cat-raid but i can not see Cat-rat instead.


Thank you,

"sorry wrong section but i can not see the button to delete this thread"

Hi sirtcp,

To find out why this happened we need to know the following things:

1. What name appeared in AD for this system (cat-raid)
2. Do you have DNS configured? If yes then what is the hostname for this machine (cat-raid)
3. Are you sure that the other name appeared in the AD corresponds to this machine?
4. When you do a reverse lookup for this machine (cat-raid) does the correct name comes up?
