I'm trying to setup a primary domain controller using samba and netbsd.
Unfortunately, netbsd will not let me add 'machine' account names. I'm
trying to do:
useradd -g machines -c WINDESKTOP -d /dev/null -s /bin/false 'windesktop$'
It complains about windesktop$ not being a valid login name. According to
this tutorial I'm using, I have to have a $ after the login name. This is
just for setting up "trust accounts". Has anyone else set up a PDC using
netbsd and samba? if so, I'd be very happy to see some suggestions or
possibly some tricks, especially on how to automate the whole user
administration process :)
