Ticket #4967 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows 2008 R2 will not join "ZENTYAL-DOMAIN"
|Reported by:||fausto.teixeira@…||Owned by:||scabrero@…|
Running "dcpromo" at a Windows 2008 R2 or attempting to simply join a Windows 2008 R2 to a Zentyal samba4 domain as a standalone server will always fail, even though Windows XP Pro machines do join without difficulty. Further tests showed that after changing 'File Sharing' -> 'General settings' -> 'NETBIOS domain name:' from "ZENTYAL-DOMAIN" to the leftmost domain name of the FQDN, the join will succeed. For example, where the FQDN is "engineering.example.com", a 'NETBIOS domain name:' of "engineering" will allow dcpromo to complete and/or the domain join to occur. CAVEAT: Zentyal Community Edition Beta, core version 2.3.21 DOES NOT PERMIT any changes to the string "ZENTYAL-DOMAIN", informing the domain name must be 15 characters or less, regardless of the new string length. I hacked around this problem with an axe, commenting out (disabling) two calls to Sub CheckWinName? within /usr/share/perl5/EBox/Samba/Model/GeneralSettings.pm.
