The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6705
Win Server 2k8 join fails: The specified account already exists
Last modified: 2009-10-16 04:43:15 UTC
Windows Server 2008 SP2 machine unable to join my freshly installed Samba PDC 3.4.0 Ubuntu Hardy.
When I try to join the domain, I'm prompted for username and password.
After entering my Samba admin credentials I get an error after 3-5 secs:
> The following error occurred attempting to join the domain DEVNET:
> The specified account already exists.

Creating the Samba users
Do you have a chance to try 3.4.1 (released yesterday) ? It has some important fixes in this regard.
Hi, if there's an apt package available soon for 3.4.1, then I'll try it.
I managed to install 3.4.0 using apt-get from launchpad.net.
On the other hand:
This is very interesting!
I installed Samba 3.2.5 on Debian Lenny,
with the exact same smb.conf, users etc. as above.
Now I'm able to successfully join my Windows machine to this new PDC...!
I have attached samba.log and netsetup.log from this process.

netsetup.log - Success!

samba.log - Success!
Just for my memory: I successfully joined a Windows 2008 R2 server into a Samba controlled (master as of today) box using ldapsam and Fedora DS (needed to add the two LanManWorkstation registry patches though).
Is this one a show stopper for 3.4.3?

If we can reproduce, yes. Bjoern, didn't you mention you saw the same issue ?
not really. I didn't try a w2k8 join though. All I can tell is that win7 joins fine.
Another reminder to myself: Installed a fresh w2k8 box, and joined it w/o any problems into a 3.4.2 PDC with ldapsam and Fedora DS.
Now, I need to check for the reporters config (tdbsam w/o scripts)
Ok, tested this successfully with 3.4.2 and origin/v3-4-test git tree as of today now also with tdbsam w/o any account management scripts, just as you have. It just worked without any problems.
No matter how hard I try, I cannot reproduce this, sorry.
Closing as worksforme with 3.4.2. If you cannot get it to work with that release, please reopen. Thanks.
