Re: failure joining AD domain when LS is on a different IP network than ADcontro
- Anyone know what version of Samba runs on a LS-PRO Ver 1.04? If they
are still running version 2.xx then this is the problem. If they
finally updated to version 3.xx (They are getting closer to releasing
Version 4 !!! see http://news.samba.org/releases/4.0.0tp5 ). Anyway
it sounds like you have WINS acting as a proxy name service for AD
I'm not real up on Windows systems these days, but it does sound kind
of messy. Are you sure it wasn't also using WINS when it was on the
local LAN? I would think you would have a much easier time routing
DNS than WINS, except that you probably already went through the pain
of getting WINS routed through your LAN anyway.
AD support in Samba 3 is a little sketchy at best. You should
probably read up on it at samba.org and see if it should work, then
you'd have to get in and hack the config file in the LS to make it
work the way you need. Probably not fun
