Samba as PDC

Postby Flexxzor on Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:41 am


I'm setting up a Samba server and up to this moment I can share several folders and I can secure them with the smbpasswd users. Now I've read stuff about automatic logon scripts on the Windows client. But, how does this work? Do they automatically login with the Windows user or do I still have to make users on the server?

Now I've found a good tutorial but there are still some problems. I follow this tutorial: www(dot)golinuxhub(dot)com/2012/08/samba-3-as-pdc.html

Now, I did everything, even copied all his commands and settings in the smb.conf document but I can't seem to connect to the domain on my client.

This is my setup:
Server: opensuse 12.3

Client: windows 8

When I connect to the domain 'EXAMPLE' as it is written in the smb.conf, I get a login screen, type in 'user1' + password and it gives me the following error:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "EXAMPLE":
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

Is this a problem with my samba config or is it an IP issue? I can ping between the 2 machines.

Can anyone help me with this?
(I posted on the Mint forums because openSUSE forums can't help me)
