Description David Mulder 2018-04-17 19:36:50 UTC
# sudo rm /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/krb5.conf
Join fails with "Cannot use the Workgroup xxxx for linux authentication"
# sudo touch /etc/samba/smb.conf
Join begins, but fails with "Failed to join domain: failed to connect to AD: Included profile file could not be read"
# sudo touch /etc/krb5.conf
Join succeeds and stubs out the smb.conf and krb5.conf files.

Created a PR at https://github.com/yast/yast-samba-client/pull/59 with the possible fixes. Tested them on TW and I was able to join AD.

Please, review and test it.
