Poking around on this further, I believe the LMHOSTS error does not matter.

The smb directive "name resolve order" defaults to "lmhosts wins host bcast" -- so I believe the file no found error is just because it's trying lmhosts first, not finding the file and then moving on.

Eventually it hits "host" resolution and uses /etc/hosts to resolve the name.

Changing the directive so that "host" is first and then re-running the command just removes the lmhosts errors; however the "ERROR(ldb): uncaught exception - LDAP error 32 LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT - <dsdb_access: Access check failed ..." is still present.

I can confirm that file does not exist.

It is interesting that it is looking for the 'otherinternaldomain.local' instead
of just 'domain.local'.

However, removing that entry from /etc/hosts does not change the output of the

Your Samba AD DC's are all authoritative for the AD dns domain and they should only know about computers etc that are in their domain. The computer 'dc3.otherinternaldomain.local' is not the same computer as 'dc3.domain.local', anything outside the 'domain.local' domain, which 'dc3.otherinternaldomain.local' is, should be forwarded to a dns server outside the AD domain, but I fear this will not work in this case, because 'dc3.otherinternaldomain.local' probably doesn't really exist.

You have confirmed (by the ldapsearch) that the record exists, so the problem is possibly dns related.

You shouldn't need those GUID records in /etc/hosts, so have you read this wikipage:


If dns is correct, when you join a DC, all the required dns records should be created by samba_dnsupdate, but if the GUID record isn't created (and it wasn't at one time) then it fails.
