I've just installed the openSUSE tumbleweed Snapshot 20170625 and want to configure Windows Domain login on console. I've successfully added the machine to the domain but when I try to login with domain\user I get login incorrect and in the journal it says User not known to the underlying authentication module

I've done this successfully on the 13.1 release... what have I forgot?

  • I finally deleted the installation and made a new one with the leap version. worked out of the box. Jul 1, 2017 at 9:25

In the smb.conf what is your winbind separator ? By default it is +, so for login it's : domain+user.

So if you want you can switch it to \ but i'm not sure it's not in use elsewhere.

  • The only winbind param I have in smb.conf is winbind refresh tickets I have also tried to login with domain+user but it failed too. Setting it manually didn't help either... Jun 28, 2017 at 16:53
  • I've checked the eventlog on the Domain Controller it seems the DC doesn't get asked... Jun 28, 2017 at 17:20
