samba question


Hi,

I'm trying to join the server in NT domain using following command.

net rpc join -S DOM -UAdministrator%password

What do I need to give for administrator and password? What password is it? I'm bit confused.

That would be the administrator password for your domain, since you specified "Administrator" as the user ID in the command line.

Yes...since in your first post you said you were trying to join an NT domain, and the command you typed in is saying to use the user-id Administrator.....
