Connecting Debian to Windows Domain

Postby NickC » 2012-06-20 14:45

I have been trying this for a while now but don't seem to be able to find out how to join my Debian 6.0.5 workstation to the Windows 2008 R2 domain? I don't want this to be a Samba server, just a client member computer of the domain. Is anyone aware of any concise documents about showing how to do this.

Alternatively what about Webmin, would that perhaps be an easier way of achieving this.

Well I can report that I have now tried this using Webmin but still no further forward. I am beginning to think that the ability to connect a Linux machine to a Windows domain network simply doesn't work yet.

Don't know about Win 2008, I use samba server. Try adding something like this to your /etc/fstab:
Code: Select all
//<server ip>/<share>  /<mount point>       cifs       username=<username>,password=<password>,_netdev,uid=<username>,domain=<domain>         0 0

I think the problem relates to not being able to create an ADS computer account on the domain controller for some reason.

Still unable to get Debian machine to join the 2008 R2 domain.

NTP is working, ntpq -p ok.
Kerberos is working, klist ok.
but
Net join -W MYDOMAIN.LOCAL –S SERVER1 –U MYAdmin
returns
Code: Select all
Failed to join domain: This operation is only allowed for the PDC of the domain
ADS join did not work, falling back to RPC
Cannot join as standalone machine


Any guesses what I have got wrong.
