I was trying to connect my Linux Mint box to our Windows Server 2003 domain. I seem to be running into the same error over and over and I don't know what I am doing wrong. I'm not really a pro, so I am assuming I am typing in something wrong when setting up my network settings. I am using Likewise Open 5 to get on the domain.
At the desktop I go to Control Center>Network. This is the information I have filled on each tab.
Host Name: gps-pc
Domain Name: thorncollc.local
DNS Servers: 192.168.1.14
Search Domain: <none>
IP Address: 127.0.0.1 Alias: gps-pc.thorncollc.local gps-pc localhost
Every time I try to join the domain using Likewise it gives me the following error.
Network name not found.. Failure to lookup a domain name ending in ".local" may be the result of configuring the local system's hostname resolution (or equivalent) to use Multi-cast DNS. Please refer to the Likewise manual at http://www.likewise.com/resources/docum ... igNsswitch for more information.
Error code: ERROR_BAD_NET_NAME (0x00000043)
I have a feeling it may have something to do with that last tab on control settings>network>hosts
I'm not quite sure what I need to put in there for the IP and the Alias. If anyone could help me set this up, I would greatly appreciate it. I know it is something super simple with the settings that I am missing.
