Samba 4.5 issues


Hi I am trying to set up a Samba server as a Domain Controller in an active directory forest.

I have set up the relms and can log in to the server as an AD user.

when I try to start Samba it fails

Quote:

Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: [2017/01/11 17:35:03.419322, 0] ../source4/smbd/server.c:466(binary_smbd_main)
Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: At this time the 'samba' binary should only be used for either:
Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: 'server role = active directory domain controller' or to access the ntvfs file server with 'server services = +smb' or the rpc proxy with 'dcerpc endpoint servers = remote'
Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: You should start smbd/nmbd/winbindd instead for domain member and standalone file server tasks
Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: [2017/01/11 17:35:03.419463, 0] ../lib/util/become_daemon.c:111(exit_daemon)
Jan 11 17:35:03 dc11 samba[8106]: STATUS=daemon failed to start: Samba detected misconfigured 'server role' and exited. Check logs for details, error code 22
It says the server role should be = to active directory server and it is .

here is the conf file
Quote:

[global]
netbios aliases = dc11.ad.intrinsix.com sodium
realm = AD.INTRINSIX.COM
dns forwarder = 24.97.91.134
security = ADS
server role = active directory domain controller
idmap config * : backend = tdb


[netlogon]
path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/ad.intrinsix.com/scripts
read only = No


[sysvol]
path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
read only = No

also then I do a Testparm I get this that also says Role member
Quote:
[root@dc11 ~]# testparm
Load smb config files from /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[netlogon]"
Processing section "[sysvol]"
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_MEMBER


any help would be appreciated.

Help for re-provisioning that worked for me:

Make a backup from the smb.config
Code:
sudo mv /etc/samba/smb.config /etc/samba/smb.config.backup
than remove the file to let the provisioning take over the configuration
Code:
sudo rm -rf /etc/samba/smb.config
Than follow the instructions:
Code:
sudo samba-tool domain provision --use-rfc2307 --interactive
(Google samba reprovision because I am not allowed to post the url to the perfect tutorial)
I hope this safes time for you to solve your problem, too
