Description Sebastian Mißfeldt 2012-08-22 07:58:29 UTC
I setup a single Samba4 PDC on a small network.

When I add a new user to the domain I got a message that there is no global catalog availabe, because the server is not working properly.

Checking the NTDS-Settings the global catalog seemed to be activated.

Looking at samba.log I can't see any error message.
Trying samba -d5 -i -M single I can't see any error message too.

Maybe I'm blindfold are something else.
But what's going wrong?
