How do I join a samba domain with windows 7?

Hello, I am trying to join our samba domain at home, and it just keeps saying unable to join x domain. The specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted.

Any help?

You join it like any other Windows domain. The samba host is pretending to be an AD domain controller (AD). Hence, it needs to expose the same DC-related DNS (SRV) records, the same sysvol share, policies...

The samba host is pretending to be a domain controller. Windows xp and windows vista can join the domain just fine, its just windows 7 that doesn't want to join.

A packet trace would be the quickest and most deteministic way to find out why (www.wireshark.com).

If you want assistance with trace analysis, upload it here (zipped up) and I or others can help.
