View Full Version : [ubuntu] Samba ADS

May 5th, 2010, 08:18 PM
I'm attempting to connect samba to an active directory setup however when running the command 'net ads join -U <myusername>' I run into an issue. The way our domain is configured I want to join one domain lets called it sub.example.local but my account(the one that has rights to add to testsub.local) is actually from example.local. So when I do something like 'net ads join -U aethiolas' it interprets that as 'net ads join -U aethiolas@sub.example.local' however if I try to run 'net ads join -U aethiolas@example.local' it will interpret it is as 'net ads join -U aethiolas@example.local@sub.example.local'. Obviously neither of these work! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated b/c unfortunately I don't control the domains so I can't change my account...
