Setup

  • Follow the Arch provision guide
  • Add role: dc to the salt minion config.


Create a file called /etc/salt/minion.d/dc.conf

grains:
  roles:
    - dc

Joining As a Domain Controller

   samba-tool domain join AD.PUMPINGSTATIONONE.ORG DC -U hef

Checking and Fixing DNS

DNS doesn't always register correctly.

check it:

   host -t dc01.ad.pumpingstationone.org.

If nothing comes back, re add it by hand.

   samba-tool dns add bob ad.pumpingstationone.org dc01 A 10.100.0.112

At this point you need the guid for the new server. The Samba Guide References the ldbsearch commmand. I couldn't get it to work, so I grabbed the objectGuid field from CN=NTDS Settings,CN=DC01,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=ad,DC=pumpingstationone,DC=org in ldap.

   host -t CNAME af4c9efd-56f6-4160-8335-cf8e5a5ada8f._msdcs.ad.pumpingstationone.org

If it's missing add it:

   samba-tool dns add bob _msdcs.ad.pumpingstationone.org af4c9efd-56f6-4160-8335-cf8e5a5ada8f CNAME dc01.ad.pumpingstationone.org

Joining As a Domain Member

   net ads join -U hef

The samba-tool domain join command does not get winbindd working correctly. The net command is required.
