Windows 7 and Samba

on

Today I tried to put in production an update of Samba 3 (3.5.4) to allow Windope 7 clients to join the domain.

After having performed what’s on the samba wiki page about this topic [here], I could join the machine to the domain but I was not able to login !? 🙁

In the log :

[2010/08/20 16:55:20.682477,  0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:714(_netr_ServerAuthenticate3)
  _netr_ServerAuthenticate3: netlogon_creds_server_check failed. Rejecting auth request from client RO-BACKUP machine account RO-BACKUP$
[2010/08/20 16:55:30.993850,  0] lib/util_sock.c:474(read_fd_with_timeout)
[2010/08/20 16:55:30.993958,  0] lib/util_sock.c:1432(get_peer_addr_internal)
  getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected
  read_fd_with_timeout: client 0.0.0.0 read error = Connection reset by peer.

The problem was easy to solve but not easy to find : the two machines had not the same time (30 secs delay !)

Fixing the time sync fixed the problem (and I’m not using kerberos and AD)

One thought on “Windows 7 and Samba

  1. Might I suggest you change the title of your blog to Everything is a Freaking NTP problem ? 🙂

    You know it’s nr 2 on my list …

    That and we can print T-Shirts 😉
