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)
I followed during this last days many talks (10), mainly in Developer Track. I really enjoyed the talks of Gerald Carter (Jerry) on Winbind’s New and Improved IDMap * Nssinfo Interface. The openchange demo was really impressive and received many applauses from the audience.
Some other talks were not so nice, some speakers should improve their speeching skill, btw I know that’s not easy.
In conclusion, I was very happy to attend to this Zamba 😛 conference where I’ve learn a lot and where I met some members of the Samba Team.
Samba 3.0.25 will be a very important release I guess.
Some pictures of the social event where we boozed with the some members of the Samba Team :
As you can see those guys are really nerds, they even code during the social event at the restaurant 😛
The rest of the afternoon of this Tuesday April 24th started with the presentation of the tool Likewise Identity of Centeris but the presentation was delayed due to technical problems and the speakers was talking too quickly.
The next speech was great ! Andrew Tridgell presented the new approach to clustering in Samba with CTDB. The figures during the demo were really impressive ! I hope the slides will be online very soon.
After this G
We started this afternoon with a very funny introduction by John Tempstra. I started it taking off his tie and the slides presenting the samba team were very funny. I hope those will be on-line soon. He called Samba : UUII (Unseen University of Incompatible Interoperability) 😉
Then we were all surprised when Howard Chu (openldap) started his very interesting presentation by playing violin !
