I was wondering, in what ways can Gentoo act as a domain controller for Windoze clients? Using Samba?
If someone has an explanation of this, or any info it would be much appreciated. I searched through the forums but couldn't find too much.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, Gentoo can become a Domain Controller for Windows Clients with Samba.

I have just done this myself, and I have Windows XP and Windows 2000 clients.

All I used was the doc AndiW provided.

Getting a domain attached shared printer working was a lot harder.

The only outstanding issue I have is dhcp/dynamic dns. :evil:

Can I see your smb.conf ???
No matter what I do, I can't get WinXP computers to logon to the domains, but they join the domain fine.
Yes, I have applied every registry hack out there, no good.

make sure that the smb machine and the "domain" name are different. In other words:

workgroup =
and
serverstring =

should be different.

Be sure to be using Windows XP Professional, as Windows XP Home will not connect to a Primary domain controller.

It does file/internet sharing, because that would be a "Home type" network. It won't log on to domains, because people normally don't run domains in their household.

Well, thats what Microsoft thinks anyway.

From the doc's
Quote:

6.3.4 Windows XP Professional

To allow Windows XP Professional to join a Samba Domain, you will need to first make the following changes to your registry and reboot:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters]
"requiresignorseal"=dword:00000000
"signsecurechannel"=dword:00000000

Next, to join your Samba domain, follow the instructions (above) for Windows 2000 Professional.

If you find that Notepad starts with "[.ShellClassInfo] LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\System32\Shell32.dll,-21787" when you log into the Samba domain, please see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 330132. This is a non-Samba-related issue, although it comes up frequently.
