The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 11479
net ads join fails when we have "%" in the AD username
Last modified: 2015-09-01 07:25:02 UTC
We are unable to join the domain and create computer account when AD username contains % in it like "test%user".
I believe the issue could be that we use “%” as the delimiter between username and password
net ads join -s XYZ.conf -U “test%user”%”password” createcomputer= XXXXXXXX hostnames=XXXXXXX
Jeremy Allison <firstname.lastname@example.org> has confirmed it is an issue. So i am filling this bug
This issue is seen in samba 3.xxx versions too
I not sure of the component, i have created it under winbindd, Please change it if required.
