log linux onto a windows domain?

By molly ·
I have a Redhat 7.3 workstation, and I'm trying to log it onto a Windows 2000 domain. The IP, host, DNS, etc are all set up just fine.
What am I missing?

log linux onto a windows domain?

Not sure about logging into a W2K domain, but if you want to see the local net you have to run lisa (from root). Have you done this? does it say its running (happy face). let us know.

Lisa needs to be installed. This allows you toi go to home and look at the ntboxes on the local subnet. Samba lets you manipulate the files and communicate from the nt to the linux (gross simplification here).
does it say lisa not installed or doesit say it cant find the config file?? Dont have a working 7.3 box here at work to look at but did you check the services in control panel?
Do an nslookup ntboxname from the linux box (where ntboxname=one of your nt's aliases) and see if you get back the right server name and ip address (i.e. checking your dns)..let us know

Oh yeah, forgot the newbie trick that always used to mess me up. Have you registered with rhn??
rhn_register this needs to be done because the binaries on the disks are only about 40% of what you need. After registering, you run up2date form root and select everything, even (and especially with multiple processors) the kernel update. WOW, look at all the stuff they left out!!!! Nasty little trick they have there. let us know about this as well and we will guide you if necessary..........

looks like someone else is trying the same thing:


Winbind and X Windows
Howdy. I've got a RedHat 7.3 workstation with winbind successfully configured to authenticate against an NT PDC when the Linux box is running in runlevel 3. Now I need toset it so that I can authenticate vs the PDC in runlevel 5. I'm using GNOME, and I will be happy to switch to SuSE, Mandrake, RedHat 8.0, anything, if someone can tell me how to successfully set it so that the graphical login is set against an NT server.

Please, words of one syllable or less, if possible.

Lisa is not installed. More suggestions? Or should I get that installed? I have the retail package of Redhat 7.3....not sure if it's on one of the disks? What about Samba? I've read some about that....

Thanks! I will look into your suggestions and let you know what I find out. Unfortunately, this is a project for a college course, so I won't get to try anything until Thursday. I'm trying to get one of my computers here at home all backed up, soI can install Redhat there and get more time to work on it.
Ultimately, I will be installing a Linux workstation on individual Windows, Mac, and Novell networks that will eventually be all combined into one complete network (some project, eh?). I volunteered for the Linux section of it all.
Any known issues with Linux on the Novell and Mac servers? Is there a better distribution I should be using? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
