Description Milan Kerslager 2013-08-22 09:29:33 UTC
In the file http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/domain-member.html there is missing information about joining classical domain (ie PDC/BDC). There is sentence:

To join the domain, run this command:

root# net rpc join -S DOMPDC -UAdministrator%password

If the -S DOMPDC argument is not given, the domain name will be obtained from smb.conf and the NetBIOS name of the PDC will be obtained either using a WINS lookup or via NetBIOS broadcast based name look up.


THIS SHOULD BE CHANGED TO:
==========================

To join the domain, run this command:

root# net rpc join -w DOMAIN -UAdministrator%password

The domain the computer is joning to is the argument for -w DOMAIN (change it to match your needs). If the argument -w DOMAIN is not given the domain name will be obtained from smb.conf. There could be argument -S DOMPDC, where the name of the PDC will be obtained either using a WINS lookup or via NetBIOS broadcast based name lookup.



PLEASE CHANGE YOUR HOWTO, THIS WAS REPORTED IN 2004. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT INFO. I TESTED WHAT I PROVIDED HERE AND IT WORKS. THANK YOU.
