    Hi there I have followed the PDC for small business setup to the letter but no joy I cannot get my 2 other machines on the network to join the domain, not sure what I have done, let me tell you a little about my setup maybe that will shed some light. I have a netgear router, that all the machines are attached to wireless and hard wire, the default WORKGROUP created by the roter is NETGEAR so I named my domain NETGEAR thinking that all the machines could just join the same domain, when I try to join the domain on a windows machine I get the following:


    My smb.conf file looks like this
    netbios name = SERVER1
    username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
    wins support = yes
    ; wins server = w.x.y.z
    name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
    ; interfaces = eth0
    ; bind interfaces only = true
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    # Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
    max log size = 1000
    ; syslog only = no
    syslog = 0

    panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

    # in the samba-doc package for details.
    security = user

    encrypt passwords = true

    passdb backend = tdbsam

    obey pam restrictions = yes

    ; guest account = nobody
    ;invalid users = root

    unix password sync = yes

    # parameters must be set (thanks to Ian Kahan <<[email protected]>
    # sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Sarge).
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:*
    %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .

    ; pam password change = no

    domain logons = yes

    ; logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
    # Another common choice is storing the profile in the user's home directory
    ; logon path = \\%N\%U\profile

    logon drive = H:
    logon script = scripts/logon.bat
    logon path = \\server1\profile\%U
    # Useradd scripts
    add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -m %u
    delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel -r %u
    add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
    delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
    add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usermod -G %g %u
    add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -s /bin/false/ -d /var/lib/nobody %u
    # # sync smb passwords woth linux passwords
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:*
    %n\n .
    passwd chat debug = yes
    # set the loglevel
    log level = 3
    ; logon home = \\%N\%U

    ; logon script = logon.cmd

    # password; please adapt to your needs
    ; add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser --quiet --disabled-password --gecos "" %u

    ; load printers = yes

    ; printing = bsd
    ; printcap name = /etc/printcap

    printing = cups
    printcap name = cups

    ; printer admin = @lpadmin

    ; include = /home/samba/etc/smb.conf.%m

    # SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY

    ; message command = /bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/linpopup "%f" "%m" %s; rm %s' &

    domain master = yes

    idmap uid = 10000-20000
    idmap gid = 10000-20000
    template shell = /bin/bash

    comment = Home Directories

    admin users = administrator
    valid users = %u
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes

    share modes = no

    comment = User profiles

    valid users = %u
    create mode = 0600
    writable = yes
    browsable = no
    directory mask = 0700

    comment = All Printers
    browseable = no
    path = /var/spool/samba
    printable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    create mask = 0700

    # Windows clients look for this share name as a source of downloadable
    # printer drivers
    comment = Printer Drivers
    path = /var/lib/samba/printers

    path = /home/Shared Docs
    guest ok = yes
    case sensitive = no
    writable = yes
    msdfs proxy = no

    Thanks in advance any help is appreciated.

    I believe you need to insert the following under the [global] section of your smb.conf

    workgroup = NETGEAR

    Then restart samba, make sure your windows clients are set to be members of the "NETGEAR" workgroup or join the "NETGEAR" domain.

    Hope this helps.

    Please change:

    netbios name = SERVER1


    netbios name = NETGEAR

    and restart samba. Make sure that you disable wins in your netgear router.
