Re: [Samba] Adding a Windows Server 2008 as a DC to the domain fails




Hai Roy, 

Hmm, i dont know for sure, but based on my google magic, i say your correct. 
Lowering the samba DC domain level should help you out. 

If someone can confirm this, thanks! 
But i must mention. 
Adding a "unsupported" ms 2008 server as dc...  wil cost you ms licenses.. 

I suggest if possible, add a new samba AD DC. 
Add the windows server as member, and you dont have to lower the domain level.


Greetz, 

Louis
