View Full Version : [ubuntu] Joining Windows AD

July 6th, 2011, 01:44 PM
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, and trying to join a Windows AD using Likewise Open.

My server is Win2k3 as DC with DNS installed.
My domain is .LOCAL, my IP addressing is static.

When I run domainjoin from the Ubuntu machine I get DNS bad packet error (251e).
All network settingsappear to be ok
I can run NSLOOKUP from Ubuntu and find my DNS server, but if i ping the server there appears to be no reply from the server to the Ubuntu machine.

Any suggestions?

Have you configured ubuntu to use the Win2003 server's DNS? This is vital in an AD environment.
