Server :: Error - Failed To Join Domain: Improperly Formed Account Name

I would like to join SLES server to Microsoft Server 2008 Active Directory to enable domain authentication when accessing samba shares. When I run


net ads join -U administrator

I get the following error


"Failed to join domain: Improperly formed account name."

I tried the same samba configuration on another server (OpenSuse 11.2) without any problem, so I think it is somehow connected with the Samba version, but I'm not sure. Has anybody experienced this behaviour?


kinit administrator@MYDOMAIN

the package versions on SLES 10 SP2 (x86_64) are following

CentOS 5 Server :: Samba PDC+LDAP, Failed To Join Domain For Win2k8?
I've setup my samba pdc with ldap, and I can see my shared files (public), which i think is an indication that my samba is working. But I can't seems to get my win2k8 machine to join my domain.

My domain admin is : root system admin: root password for both domain admin and system admin are the same The message that I get from Win2k8 when I try to join a domain is "The specified computer account could not be found. Contact an administrator to verify the account is in the domain. If the account has been deleted unjoin, reboot, and rejoin the domain"

I've got a home server running Ubuntu Server 9.04 and several machines running Ubuntu Desktop (9.04 and 8.04) and Windows (XP, Vista and 7).

Networking :: Can't Join Windows 2000 Domain Using Net Ads Join?
I?m trying to change the Windows server to Linux. I?m using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS with Samba 3.02. Security is ads so the server is a domain server. The good thing is I had it working where as windows could see the share files and Ubuntu could see the windows files. I started downloading files into the share directory and started setting up permission. I rebooted the server and now I can not join the domain using net ads join.I can join using RPC but share don?t work.I can see my domain users and groups using wbinfo. I using Windows2k in native mode and Realm is pointing to the domain.

Ubuntu Networking :: Likewise Error When Attempting To Join Windows Domain
I'm having a problem getting likewise to connect to a Windows 2008 R2 server on our network.


Error: Lsass Error [code 0x00080047] 9502 (0x251E) DNS_ERROR_BAD_PACKET - A bad packet was received from a DNS server. Potentially the requested address does not exist. I have already read up on this a little bit. Both servers are within a minute of each other, so I am not concerned about server timing. I am not sure where to go from this point. Everything I have read seems to indicate that this should "just work".

OpenSUSE Network :: Domain- Incapable MS Windows Version To Join Suse Domain?
I was wondering if there is any way to enable an MS Windows client that is otherwise unable of joining a domain to join a domain controlled by (open)SUSE? Is that inability only for joining a Windows based domain but a client that runs XP Home Edition or similar domain- incapable version of Windows could join a domain if it was controlled by Linux?Pardon my newbie style, but answer doesn't have to be detailed step-by-step, just yes/no answer with some pointers would do. I am not new to linux but new to network services... search engines weren't friendly when asked this question at the search bar...

Ubuntu :: Unable To Join AD Domain?
I put a Lucid 10.04 box on a Windows AD network. I want it to join the domain. I used likewise-open5_5.0.3991.1-0ubuntu2_i386

I ran

1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get install likewise-open
3. sudo domainjoin-cli join fqdn of your domain Administrator
4. sudo update-rc.d likewise-open defaults
5. sudo /etc/init.d/likewise-open start

After step 3, I get

Joining to AD Domain: mydomain dot local

With Computer DNS Name: ubuntu dot mydomain dot local

Administrator(at)MYDOMAIN dot LOCAL's password: [I entered it]

Error: Lsass Error [code 0x00080047]
40286 (0x9D5E) LW_ERROR_LDAP_SERVER_DOWN - Unknown error

Im just a Windows schlep new to Linux. I dont even know where to find things like /etc/nsswitch.conf--winbind, let alone how to edit them.

Server :: Samba: Simple Error With NET RPC JOIN
I try to setup a client (for password /etc/passwd) to my samba server, without using the kerberos. let's make it simple: just samba. here are the errors: I have installed winbind, portmap, and samba/smbclient packages on the workstation linux ubuntu , which is intended to be client to samba for /etc/password attached to the server. At boot nothing changed, and the /etc/password is not attached to samba. So my passwords are stil the local of hte client, and not the server. This is my config of the client workstation:

Debian :: Join Machines To Windows Domain AD?
I have 15 or so debian lenny machines, and a xen server that I would like to join to the windows 2003 AD domain controller. The main goal is I would like the windows / linux user names and passwords to be the same on each system. Only 10 or so users need access to the machines but the passwords sometimes are different. How should I go about accomplishing this ?

I was told that openldap may be a solution. But from what I've read about it sounds like its just a mimic or window AD and doesnt sync with it, at least natively ?
