Description Amit Kumar 2019-07-29 07:04:21 UTC
1. Joined system to AD (DC=atest,DC=com)

# /usr/local/samba/bin/net ads join -U Administrator 
Enter Administrator's password:

Using short domain name -- ATEST
Joined 'NETBIOS' to dns domain 'atest.com'

2. Cannot create OU at path:
# /usr/local/samba/bin/samba-tool ou create 'OU=del-ou,DC=atest,DC=com'
ERROR: Invalid ou_dn "OU=del-ou,DC=atest,DC=com": unable to parse dn string
  File "/usr/local/samba/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/samba/netcmd/ou.py", line 204, in run
    full_ou_dn = samdb.normalize_dn_in_domain(ou_dn)
  File "/usr/local/samba/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/samba/samdb.py", line 1132, in normalize_dn_in_domain
    domain_dn = ldb.Dn(self, self.domain_dn())

3. At looking in the code, domain_dn() returns None.
url is correct url=tdb:///usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb

-> called using ldb object.
    def domain_dn(self):
        '''return the domain DN'''
        return str(self.get_default_basedn())
