I am testing the domain-controler appliance and it works fine with XP.

With seven Pro 64, I can connect to smb file share, but can't join the domain. It prompt me for the login and password, but after that I get a error message like "the domain doesn't exist or can't be contacted" (my message is in french). The ping is ok in both directions.

I also updated to samba4 (using apt-get), but doesn't change anything.

Do you have any clue ?


Thanks in advance,



PS: I'm almost a beginner with linux

Because I have no experience with Samba4 and very limited experience with Win7.

First thing though, did you uninstall Samba3? If not you probably should do that (I suspect that they will be struggle between themselves for control), and I also suspect that it will require it's own config (assuming you haven't already configured it independantly). Also I have no idea if Webmin will administer Samba4, so you may need to configure it manually.
