Samba and Active Directory

I’ve been logging a couple of computers Samba computers onto my Active Directory setup in the last couple of days, while I wouldn’t call this a pleasant process and I wish it was easier it’s reasonably straightforward. There is some great documentation on the net which I’m going to link to some of it here, for future reference.

The only other thing I’ve found when doing all of this is this error message

ads_connect: No such file or directory

, a quick search on the net found little information about it. This appears when you do a

net ads join

and is caused by misconfigured dns servers. In my case pppoe had usepeerdns set and would reset my dns every time the dsl link went down, fixing this let’s the join work every time.

  1. I like this article. I´ve never been to Japan, but i really want to go one day. These rules are very interessting. Especially those with the Busines Card and with the chopsticks. These hints will be very helpfull when going to Japan for a business meeting. Thank you.

  2. The best way to know if the shakes are causing it is to stop ….and see if they go away…then if you dare…go on them again and see if they come back. If they are consistent with taking the shakes then I would suspect them. Just my non-medical two cents.
