SuSE 9, Samba server and Win2k server domain


Hi everyone!

I am getting difficulties in settings of Samba Server, running on SuSE 9.
Please, can anyone tell me what should I do to make my Linux machine
"see" the other machines running Windows 2k/XP pro in this domain?
What I have managed to do already is to make a share on my linux machine that is accessibe from the win machines in the same domain, but I do not know how to make the other way?

Thanks in advance!!!

After installing Samba and giving your system a netbios name and filling out all the other goodies in smb.conf, your machine has to be added to the domain controller. This is done with the smbpasswd command:

smbpasswd -j DOMAIN -r DOMAINCONTROLLER -U privledgedadminuser_able_to_add_to_domain

eg..

smbpasswd -j FOO -r foo2k123 -U joemamma

May take up to 20 minutes to propagate.

10X. very very much!
It worked... but not the way it was ment to be.
I mean, now I see the windows PCs in this domain, but unfortunately
I could not access their shared directories :-(
The message is: The file or directory does not exists.
I must say that on the Win2K PDC is running MS-Active directory.
Is this the reason that I cannot access shares on Win-PCs?

Thanks in advance!
