Re: [edlug] Samba problem

you also need to create an account for the machine you are trying to join to the domain.
Machine names end with a $ symbol. so in the password file you need something like
machine1$:x:10001:10001:Machine login account 1:/tmp:/sbin/nologin

Create a samba account for the machine the same way you did for root.
Now join the windows machine to the domain usinf the root username and password you set up earlier.

Doesn't the add machine script do this automatically?
