I have been attempting to join my Fedora machine to my 2008 AD DS domain (testdomain.lcl) for some time now. I have followed this article:
But with no luck. I have also tried Likewise. The error I am getting is "Error in domain join verification (credential setup failed): NT_Status_Invalid_Computer_Name.
I have one server on which I've set up AD DS, DNS, and DHCP services. I have verified that the Fedora machine is getting an IP and I can do an nslookup to the domain controller.
Here are the relevant parts of my smb.conf file:
workgroup=testdomain password server=192.168.1.2 realm=TESTDOMAIN security=ads idmap uid=16777216-33554431 idman-gid=16777216-33554431 template shell=/sbin/nologin winbind use default domain=false winbind offline logon=false
