    Censornet Authentication Woes

    This morning I have come into the office to find censornet seems to have stopped authenticating against our AD. Have checked the usual settings in User Authentication Config and that the system time hasn't become unsynchronized. When trying to connect to the internet I get as far as the username and password dialog - which does not accept any credentials.
    I have now also rebuilt the box but am still experiencing the same problem.
    Thanks

    assuming Censornet uses the same system to auth against AD as a generic Linux/Samba system would, try the following:

    Code:
    wbinfo -t
    Code:
    klist
    Code:
    net status

    check winbind is running.
    Probably your best bet is searching for the error code on the samba lists.

    Re: Censornet Authentication Woes

    The machine account's password has expired/changed. Basically things have got out of sync. You can verify if this really is the problem with:
    Code:
    net ads testjoin
    If it is, you can reset the machine account password with:
    Code:
    net ads changetrustpw
    If that doesn't work, then delete the machine account from AD and rejoin the machine to the domain with:
    Code:
    net ads join
