Description of problem:
Cannot join windows 2003 Active Directory domain
2003 needs MIT kerberos, not available yet from Redhat
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install samba, install kerberos packages,confiure krb5.conf, kdc.conf
2.use admin account to try and join to the domain
3.use the net join commmand
Actual Results: failes with error 52
Expected Results: should join ADS domain
this exact configuration has been used in the past to join many other
samba servers to the ADS domain.
per SAMBA Team MIT kerberos must be used to JOIN a Win2k3 (native) ADS
No one has run into this issue yet??
Yes we have. See bug #114938
I've had luck with Kostas Georgiou's Kerberos packages, I'm not sure
why Redhat is dragging their heels on this. I encourage you to read
the whole thread to understand what is happening.
You can get the rpms at http://www.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk/~georgiou/krb5
thx for the input.. I have been trying to recompile source rpms from
FC1 to get them working.. but no to no avail...
I will give Kotas' packages a shot.. shame that RedHat is trivializing
this issue.. There will ALWAYS be a need for M$ interoperability.. at
least where I work..
I am able to join my Windows Server 2003 AD domain from my RHEL3
server using just Red Hat packages:
[Administrator@seitz-rhel3 root]# net ads join
Using short domain name -- QA4
Joined 'SEITZ-RHEL3' to realm 'QA4.NEOPATHNETWORKS.COM'
