I am trying to join a self compiled samba 4.8.2 DC to an existing
Windows domain using
as instructions.

The smb.conf looks like the following:

     netbios name = PHT-VDC1
     realm = EXAMPLE.COM
     server role = active directory domain controller
     server services = s3fs, rpc, nbt, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc,
drepl, winbindd, ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate workgroup = EXAMPLE

     path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/example.com/scripts
     read only = No

     path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
     read only = No

The above was generated by the following samba-tool command line:
samba-tool domain join example.com DC -U"example\admin"

When I run samba-tool I get the following output:
(pht-vdc1 pts10) # samba-tool domain join example.com DC

0x000021bf Join failed - cleaning up

This is where it seems to fail and 0x000021bf is this:

The replication operation failed because the target object
referenced by a link value is recycled.

So it might be an idea to check the DC you are trying to join to.

Check it for what? If I understand correctly the error is saying that
the target object is not there. The problem is I do not understand
what the target object is or how to find it. Assuming that the error
is referring to Partition[DC=example,DC=com] objects[466/7952]
linked_values[72/388] How do I figure out what the error is referring

As I said in a separate message, I can successfully join using 4.7.7.
If this is a problem with the existing MS DC, why does 4.7.7 join
without error?

To be clear I am not doubting your advice and I do appreciate it. I
am just trying to understand.


The index mode changed at 4.8.0, this might be more picky i.e. it wont
allow things that 4.7.x would.

If this was a Samba DC, I would suggest running 'samba-tool
dbcheck' on it, but is there a windows version of this tool ?

Apparently there is

Huh, learn something new every day!! :-)

I am going to give that a try.

If 4.7.7 joins and works successfully, have you considered using this
as the main DC and try joining the 4.8.2 to it ?

That also sounds like a good idea.

Thanks for the help.
