View Full Version : [ubuntu] Samba PDC access denied when trying to join machines

August 1st, 2012, 11:51 PM
Hi, I just configured a Samba PDC on my network, but every time I try to add a machine to the domain I am told "Access Denied"

I followed the instructions on the ubuntu help site here: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/samba-dc.html

But still I am unable to join machines to the domain.

Here is the output of testparm, hope its usefull:
