Binddn for user root not found


#1

After successfully completing a test installation, I was unable to successfully migrate from Virtual-Box to ESXi/vSphere.

So yesterday I re-installed all of them on the ESXi/vSphere.
First the AD master, then two AD backups, which will later offer Kopano and SMB shares.

Installation and JOIN went smoothly. Then I installed the AD-compatible domain controller on all three machines. First on the master, then the backups. That too ran without problems.

root@mannheim:~# univention-check-join-status
Joined successfully

(on both AD backups)

But if I want to set up a file share, it doesn’t work. The directories are created, but the rights are not set correctly.

An “univention-join” results in the following output on both AD backups:

root@mannheim:~# univention-join

Hey,

you must use an LDAP account with univention-join. root is a local user on each machine and doesn’t exist in LDAP. Use administrator instead.

Kind regards,
