How to test successful Samba AD installation ?


Post by drnicolas » 16 Mar 2016 13:44

My target ist to use Samba AD as another Backup- Domaincontroller besides a W2008-Server.

I installed Samba AD which worked successfully at first view. i don't see any error messages.

But i can't test this.

on the W2008 AD, I do NOT see the new NAS4Free-AD under the domain-Controllers tab. Is this normal ?

How can I test the functionality of the Samba-AD?
How can i test if the DNS-Propagation between W2008 und Samba-AD works ?

A good overview of Samba can be found here. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Activ ... to#Testing

Now nas4free is different, but wbinfo works the same way. And no you will not see the nas4free server on the domain.
