Re: Problem Accessing Samba share from Windows workstation via DNS Round Robin

Hi Simo,

Thanks for your email. (It is good to get some reassurances I am on the right track...:)

"My preferred one is to join the cluster to the domain with the public name (clusterpub) in your case, and share the keytab between the 2 nodes. They are logically a single server and need to share the same credentials."

This is how I have set it up (as per samba ctdb wiki documentation) using "clusterpub" but it just refuses to let me map "\\clusterpub\share" on my windows client. I can hit the individual node's share using IP: \\10.101.4.16\share & \\10.101.4.17\share and these work fine (which is really working as per your option two).

As given before, incredibly I am able to successfully connect to \\clusterpub\share using smbclient from one of the linux nodes using my window domain login. I am confident winbind is working ok. 

It looks like Kerberos is having a problem. When trying to map from windows I get the following error in /var/log/messages (on the node that dns happens to send me to): "krb5_rd_req failed (Key table entry not found)".

# klist -ke
Keytab name: FILE:/etc/krb5.keytab

You have 2 ways to solve this issue.

My preferred one is to join the cluster to the domain with the public name (clusterpub) in your case, and share the keytab between the 2 nodes. They are logically a single server and need to share the same credentials.

Another way I like a lot less is to make sure you have PTR records set up so that they point to the respective private names, and join each node with these names. I like this less because it relies on reverse address resolution and kinda breaks the fact you are trying to present a single service to the clients.

Simo.
