    Guys,

    So something strange is happening here - and I need your help. The net rpc getsid command doesn't work on the BDC unless I add the IP address of the PDC.........why is this?

    [root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid CENTRALTRUCK
    Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK


    [root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid CENTRALTRUCK -I 172.23.6.127
    Storing SID S-1-5-21-2983252645-957758320-1681478634 for Domain CENTRALTRUCK in secrets.tdb

    I need some help guys,

    I have been able to follow the HOW-TO guide to setup the PDC and BDC. The LDAP on the BDC is synched with the master and I can see all the user accounts and machine accounts. However, while proceeding with the rest of the instructions in the manual, I ran into an error which says: "Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK"

    Note that the Windows Networking is STOPPED on the second server (BDC).

    Here's a printout of the error:

    [root@server3 ~]# ldapsetup -f
    What is the role of this server (standalone, master, replicate)?: replicate
    What is your domain (e.g. example.com)?: centraltruck.lan
    What is the hostname of the master LDAP server?: 172.23.6.127
    Specify the master LDAP password?: The following settings will be used to set up LDAP

    Role: replicate
    Master: 172.23.6.127
    Domain: centraltruck.lan
    Password: ****************

    Shutting down SMB services: [ OK ]
    Stopping slapd: [ OK ]
    Starting slapd: [ OK ]
    Stopping ldapsync: [ OK ]
    Starting ldapsync: [ OK ]
    [root@server3 ~]# touch /etc/system/initialized/sambalocal
    [root@server3 ~]# service winbind start
    Starting Winbind services: [ OK ]
    [root@server3 ~]# smbpasswd -w securepassword
    Setting stored password for "cn=manager,cn=internal,dc=centraltruck,dc=lan" in secrets.tdb
    [root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid CENTRALTRUCK
    Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK
    [root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid MYDOMAIN
    Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK

    Greetings, I have worked stopping the LDAP service and LDAPSYNC, I deleted the files in /var/lib/ldap except DB_CONFIG located in the same folder and accesslog

    LDAP service started I changed the permissions, I return to stop and start the LDAP, run ldapsync, finally start the sevice LDAPSYNC

    However I have the same problem with pdbedit-L

    By blank slate, do you mean a new installation, or just wiping out LDAP? I did do the latter, but not the former.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    When setting up a BDC it is best to start with a blank slate.

    Setup the LDAP replication first and use the same password that you use for LDAP on the Master server.

    Why do I *always* speak too soon?

    All my accounts were correctly replicated in the BDC so I thought that all was well. Today, I noticed that the instructions had changed a little, so I tried this on the BDC:

    pdbedit -L

    and received the response:

    failed to bind to server ldap://127.0.0.1 with dn="cn=manager,cn=internal,dc=whisperingwoods,dc=org" Error: Invalid credentials
    (unknown)
    Connection to LDAP server failed for the 1 try!
    Connection to LDAP server failed for the 2 try!
    Connection to LDAP server failed for the 3 try!


    I assume that this is not correct. Any suggestions? Should I wipe the BDC LDAP and try again with updated instructions?

    I just talked to David about this a few minutes ago. He's going to finish up some lose ends in the following document (there was an update just today!):

    http://www.clearfoundation.com/docs/developer/features/samba_pdc_and_bdc/start

    And then yours truly will integrate some of those items into a script to help ease the pain a bit.

    Sorry. The initiative took a bit of a back seat with the last minute trip to the CompTIA Breakaway 2010 show. I'll circle around a little later this month.
