ClearOS ClearFoundation and ClearCenter have moved to the new website ClearOS.com (https://clearos.com). We are making this change in order to improve search and exposure of ClearOS to the world. There are several improvements that are being made and some that are still on the table for development. The forums are now live on clearos.com and locked on this site until all the redirects are in place. If you have issues using the new site, feel free to ask on the #clearfoundation room in IRC chat on freenode.net or engage with a chat agent on the site if they are around. Our goal is to complete this step so that we can be properly ready for the types of communication that will be essential for the release of ClearOS 7!

TOPIC: Problems with PDC/BDC Setup
Problems with PDC/BDC Setup 3 Years, 3 Months ago  
I need some help guys,

I have been able to follow the HOW-TO guide to setup the PDC and BDC. The LDAP on the BDC is synched with the master and I can see all the user accounts and machine accounts. However, while proceeding with the rest of the instructions in the manual, I ran into an error which says: "Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK"

Note that the Windows Networking is STOPPED on the second server (BDC).

Here's a printout of the error:


[root@server3 ~]# ldapsetup -f
What is the role of this server (standalone, master, replicate)?: replicate
What is your domain (e.g. example.com)?: centraltruck.lan
What is the hostname of the master LDAP server?:
Specify the master LDAP password?: The following settings will be used to set up LDAP

Role:     replicate
Domain:   centraltruck.lan

Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK
[root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid MYDOMAIN
Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK

Additionally, something strange is happening. The net rpc getsid command doesn't work on the BDC unless I add the IP address of the PDC.........why is this?


[root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid CENTRALTRUCK
Unable to find a suitable server for domain CENTRALTRUCK


[root@server3 ~]# net rpc getsid CENTRALTRUCK -I
