I am trying to rename a computer on my samba domain but it fails telling me I hadn't rights to do it.
Obviously, I use the same admin account (root) than the one which add this computer on the domain some seconds before.
I am using samba 3.0.24 on Debian etch with a openldap SAM backend and smbldap-tools scripts using these conf params :
add user script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-useradd -c "Samba user account" -m -s /bin/false '%u'
add machine script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-useradd -c "Samba computer account" -g 515 -w -s /bin/false '%u'
add group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-groupadd '%g'
add user to group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-groupmod -m '%u' '%g'
delete user script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-userdel '%u'
delete group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-groupdel '%g'
delete user from group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-groupmod -x '%u' '%g'
set primary group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-usermod -g '%g' '%u'
So far, I can add a computer on a domain, but I can't rename it.
I tried to rename the computer using smbldap-usermod before updating it in WinXP, but obviously, it fails telling me the user is
The only way I found is to add a computer with the new name to the domain using smbldap-useradd, leaving the domain from WinXP,
renaming it under WinXP, re-join the domain, then drop the old computer account.
Here the content of log.root when I try to rename the computer (using "log file = /var/log/samba/log.%U" and log level = 3)
The ACCESS denied is at line 771 : "set_user_info_21: failed to rename account: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"
I could give a more verbose log file, but this one is pretty huge...
So, where did I fail ?
Do we can rename a computer on a samba domain ?
Feel free to ask me anything more you need to help me
