Debian Etch, Samba and Windows Server 2008 Domain Controllers

Filed under: Networking — pj @ 3:25 pm

Teztech is in the process of upgrading one of our customers from Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 to Exchange Server 2007. Exchange Server 2007 requires a Windows 2003 or newer domain controller. This client happens to still have a Windows Server 2000 PDC, so we first have to upgrade the PDC. We decided to go ahead and dive in and replace the PDC with a server running Windows Server 2008.

After promoting the 2008 server to a domain controller, I noticed that our file server running Debian Etch could no longer resolve Windows domain usernames and groups. (more…)
