Suse11 fails to join local domain


Well Im able to get samba and or winbind.
To see the local Domain. Both services ask. "host is not a member"..Do you want to join to the local domain.

When I type in the domains administrator user name and the password to join.. It spends 5 min at least. trying to find the domain.. and authenticate. Suse soon tells me, failed to join domain.. cant find dc for domain.


I get the same message trying to joining via samba or winbind.

Course I can sign into the domain.. If my machine is loged in as a local.. I have no domain option to log in as.

Now when I had ver 10.3 and the novel sled I was able to get them to join the domain. And log in as a domain user.
But So far Ver 11 Ive been Struggling with.

OK its been 4 or 5 years since I have setup a samba domain controller, first of all, make sure you have added root as a samba user:

smbpasswd -a root

Then you need to add a machine account to samba before the machine will be able to join the domain controller. Only root can add an account for a machine the very first time, after that, a normal samba user can then connect that machine to the domain controller.

There are two ways to add a machine account, you can either add one manually, or on-the-fly, just need to check the documentation regarding samba for that

woops I should have added.. Im not wanting samba to be a PDC.
There should already be a PDC in the network.. since all the rest of my coworkers can join the domain.. Course understanding im the only SUSE linux user within a windows local domain network.

Ah I see, your trying to connect linux to a windoze domain controller. Unfortunately I have never tried to connect to a windows domain controller before, ususally its the other way around for me.

Please make sure your hostname.
I am using opensuse 11 to join Windows Domain until now.
