I want to use
realmd to join an Active Directory domain from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
To do that I just installed
realmd and some dependencies with this command:
aptitude install realmd sssd sssd-tools samba-common krb5-user.
After the installation I tried to join my domain with the command
realm --verbose join ad.example.com -U Administrator it asked for the Administrator password but them crashed with this output:
* Resolving: _ldap._tcp.ad.example.com * Performing LDAP DSE lookup on: 10.7.0.2 * Successfully discovered: ad.example.com Password for Administrator: * Unconditionally checking packages * Resolving required packages * Installing necessary packages: samba-common-bin * LANG=C LOGNAME=root /usr/bin/net -s /var/cache/realmd/realmd-smb-conf.QARGGX -U Administrator ads join ad.example.com Enter Administrator's password:DNS update failed: NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER Using short domain name -- AD-EXAMPLE Joined 'REALMD-TEST' to dns domain 'ad.example.com' No DNS domain configured for realmd-test. Unable to perform DNS Update. * LANG=C LOGNAME=root /usr/bin/net -s /var/cache/realmd/realmd-smb-conf.QARGGX -U Administrator ads keytab create Enter Administrator's password: realm: Couldn't join realm: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
After those erros
realmd does not even work, any command issued with
realm: Couldn't connect to realm service: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.realmd: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildSignaled: Process /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper received signal 11
/etc/sssd/sssd.conf appears to be created correctly and
/etc/nsswitch.conf modified accordingly. But this isn't sufficient to successfully join the domain.
