Description olly 2004-07-14 04:39:03 UTC
When upgrading from 3.0.4 SuSE rpms to 3.0.5rc1 I found that
all daemons started correctly, but all domain authentication failed. I am
running a samba server as a member server against a Windows 2000 mixed mode
domain. 'getent group' did return a correct list of all the groups, so
there was at least some level of connectivity (it was not cached because nscd
was stopped).

I tried to rejoin the domain, but joining the domain failed. When I reverted
back to 3.0.4, I joined the domain with no trouble. My config is as below:

        workgroup = FOO
        server string = Samba Server
        security = DOMAIN
        map to guest = Bad User
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        restrict anonymous = 2
        log level = 8
        time server = Yes
        os level = 2
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        ldap ssl = no
        host msdfs = Yes
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        template shell = /bin/bash
        winbind use default domain = No
        admin users = '@Foo\Domain Admins'
        veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/

For the 3.0.5rc1 attempt to join the domain, could you add a debug level 10 log?
The output of 'net rpc join -U user%pass -d 10' might help, along with a network

Ethereal capture for net join

Here is the capture as requested. After trying a few times, it locked the
account out, so it must be trying to authenticate, but failing
Comment 5 Volker Lendecke 2004-07-15 03:02:23 UTC
This looks very like you mis-typed the password for "tempadmin". Could you try
to log in to a share on the DC with smbclient, for example

smbclient //genetix01/netlogon -U tempadmin -W genetix

Comment 6 olly 2004-07-15 04:10:49 UTC
Hi Volker,

I have just checked by bash history to make sure, but the command line executed was:

net rpc join -U tempadmin%tempadmin -d 10

I executed that same command twice, once with 3.0.5rc1, then stopped services,
installed 3.0.4 rpms, then executed the same command from my history again and
it worked correctly. Therefore I cannot have mistyped the passord. Don't worry I
have disabled tempadmin account since ;-).

When I have a chance later (the server is in use) I can upgrade it again and
execute the command you specified, if you still wish.
Comment 7 olly 2004-07-15 04:13:54 UTC
BTW, I tested the command below on 3.0.4 and it works, so the password must be

smbclient //genetix01/netlogon -U tempadmin%tempadmin -W genetix

originally against 3.0.5rc1pre1 (which became 3.0.6rc1 due to security release))
Please retest against 3.0.11 and reopen if still an issue.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
