Ubuntu domain-join problems


We had some problems with the new Ubuntu domain join script

  • the GUI version does not allow us to use an administrator name with a dot in it
  • the CLI version fails to join the computer to the domain but reports success when the administrator used is not root on the domain controller. When this happens ldap_default_bind_dn is set to None in sssd.conf
  • the CLI version reports missing logging module when a log file is specified

Are we supposed to be able to run this with the credentials of a user who has domain join abilities (the user can join windows computers to the domain) or does it have to be able to ssh the controller as root?

Many thanks, Julian
