Re: [Samba] Problems with Samba 4.5.16 - configuring a second failover AD DC and joining this to an existing domain SAMDOM




Thanks for taking a look Roland, and I appreciate your comments regarding your scripts. I am not a professional sysadmin so there likely is stuff there that the grizzled unix veterans on this list will find a little odd  :)

I just restarted samba on ad2 as per your suggestion and I got the following output:

pi@ad2:~ $ sudo systemctl restart samba-ad-dc.service
pi@ad2:~ $ sudo samba-tool drs showrepl

Warning: No NC replicated for Connection!

The LDAP error doesn't appear to reoccur after restart, but should the outbound neighbours section be empty here in this output? That seems odd. To further verify correctness and overall sanity I tried to create some user accounts, both on ad1 and ad2. I would expect these accounts to automatically replicate across all DCs if everything is working properly.

First on ad1:
pi@ad1:~ $ sudo samba-tool user add test_user
Note: samba-tool user add is deprecated.  Please use samba-tool user create for the same function.
New Password:
Retype Password:
User 'test_user' created successfully

Verifying this on ad2:
pi@ad2:~ $ sudo samba-tool user list
Administrator
test_user
krbtgt
Guest

[WORKS OK]

Likewise on ad2:
pi@ad2:~ $ sudo samba-tool user add test_user2
Note: samba-tool user add is deprecated.  Please use samba-tool user create for the same function.
New Password:
Retype Password:
User 'test_user2' created successfully

Verifying on ad1:

pi@ad1:~ $ sudo samba-tool user list
Administrator
test_user
krbtgt
Guest

[FAILURE, test_user2 doesnt replicate as expected]

So something is clearly wrong here!

 * I can create users on ad1 and these transfer to ad2 without issue

 * However the converse is not true, users created on ad2 do not seem
   to transfer to ad1.

I did try a sudo systemctl restart samba-ad-dc after each user creation, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

Thanks
Stephen
