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.
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
