After creating a Samba PDC and integrating it with LDAP ( also using smbldap-tools ), the linux machine is able to establish a 2way trust with other linux machines that are set to do so. but when trying to establish a connection to a MS AD the AD Server refuses this connection and ( in Security Events ) shows that there is no such user ( LSErver$ ) which is the Linux machine name. the other way of the trust is working fine.
It is obvious that this is a MS problem and something needs to be done of the AD server , BUT WHAT ? , when i try to add a user to the MS AD it tells me that the user already exist ( though it doesnt appear to be anywhere ) i tried everything on the net , and nothing appears to work.
I susspect that something needs to be modified in the MS registry but i wouldnt know.
can you please upload a network trace containing the traffic between samba and AD when you do something that causes the connection failure?
by "trying to establish a connection to a MS AD" you mean also another 2-way trust to the AD or what exactly do you mean?
