Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: samba
it is a request feature :
- you have a Windows 2003 Domain Controller named "dc1".
- you have a linux machine and in smb.conf, a mistake is made : "netbios name" parameter is set to "dc1"
if you want to join machine to your domain, and if you use "net rpc"
instead of "net ads", the command will succeed. But the DC1 machine
object on your 2003 Domain Controller will be replaced by a new object
that referred to the linux machine !
At this point, after reboot, your windows 2003 Domain Controller is
unusable (DNS down can't contact Active Directory)
Solution is to use Microsoft tool : netdom resetpwd
It would be great if net rpc detect existing object machine named as
linux machine ..
