Microsoft Active-Directory & IpFire

Samba is installed on my IpFire.
I am trying to join my Active-Directory server with IpFire, but an error message is displayed.
Do you have any idea to help me?


Paul, I don’t have Samba installed but I wonder if you need to add your Domain controller to your local DNS



Thank you Trish! Have you configured this part?

Paul, I haven’t but it looks good to me. Although I am pretty new to IPfire.
I wonder if there are more debugging messages in

if not try to increase
log level = 3
in smb.conf

Hi Trish,

I don’t quite understand your situation !!
Do you have a server with windows server 2016 and an Ipfire?
Can you explain your configuration to me?


Hi Paul,

I don’t have the server anymore. Sorry hope you were able to get it to work.

Hi trish,
Thank you. It works perfectly. It is not easy for the 1st, but now I understand how it works.
