We just installed a Windows 2008 Enterprise server and I'm having a problem joining the domain. We're running Ubuntu Server, OpenLdap with Samba shares.

Does anyone know of reference material where I can find information about getting this server to properly join our domain.

I've tried googling various boolean searches with poor results.

Is the server running as an NT4-style domain, or are you emulating Active Directory? –  Avery Payne Nov 4 '09 at 4:44

I presume you're using Windows 2008 R2, not plain Windows 2008 - as 2008 should connect to a vanilla Samba server.

Also if you have Windows 2008 R2 your Samba version will need to be 3.3 or higher (wiki.samba.org/index.php/Windows7) –  Jon Rhoades Jan 2 '10 at 4:21
