SLED – Domain user failes to authenticate to AD domain
This document (7000904) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (i586) SP1
The initial join to the AD domain
Later authentications to the AD domain work.
Later authenticating the same user to the same domain fails.
- if you open a terminal and switch to the root user
- go to /var/lib/samba/
- mv winbindd_cache.tdb winbindd_cache.tdb.bk
- mv winbindd_idmap.tdb winbindd_idmap.tdb.bk
- reboot the workstation
- rejoin the domain
- roboot the workstation
- authenticate to the domain
If this works then there was data corruption in the .tdb files.
You can avoid this data corruption in the future by adding the line,
to the [Global] section of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
After doing so restart Samba. (rcsmbd restart)
