New_server - Ubuntu 6.06.2 LTS (recently updated from Breezy) w/Samba
Old_server - RedHat 8 w/Samba 2.2.5-10 - yes, I know this is old -
usually when something works I try not to mess with it.
The RedHat server is functioning as the PDC for this network. Prior to
upgrading the New_server everything was working fine - shares on
New_server were accessible just as they should be.
After upgrading New_server, there now there appears to be a problem with
domain validation of users/passwords on this computer. When trying to
connect to a share on New_server from a Windows box, I get the following
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop>net use n: \\New_server\share
System error 58 has occurred.
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.
I erased the machine account from Old_server and re-added it, then tried
root@New_server:/scripts# net join
[2008/04/28 08:31:12, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(191)
ads_connect: Transport endpoint is not connected
Joined domain LAN.
It appears the network has been joined but I'm still not able to
validate users/passwords via the PDC, and I don't understand the
apparent error that has been generated here.
Also when running testparm on New_server I get the following message:
Loaded services file OK.
WARNING: passdb expand explicit = yes is deprecated
Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_MEMBER
but I do not have the parameter "passdb expand explicit" defined in
smb.conf. Here is the [global] section:
server string=Backup Server
workgroup = LAN
encrypt passwords = true
map to guest = Bad Password
And here is the [global] section on Old_server:
server string=PDC File Server
## SUPPORT FOR WINS & DOMAIN LOGONS
domain admin group=root user administrator
## END WINS/DOMAIN SECTION
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
