Adding a ubuntu client to Nethserver as Primary Domain Controller


I keep asking stuffs about Nethserver and the domain administration, this time Im trying to connect a Ubuntu desktop client as a member of the domain controlled by Nethserver.

Im using domainjoin-cli to join the machine but i keep getting this error:


A bad packet was received from a DNS server. Potentially the requested address does not exist.

Stack Trace:

I tried the same configuration againts a Zentyal server and works, is there any tutorial where i can found the solution to my problem?


can’t answer your question but…

please be aware you are joining a NT style domain, not an AD one…
for some reference, you can read here:

We have talked about this in the yesterday hangout
@Ctek can say something about :wink:
