Many thanks go out to a number of people who have helped to close a bug which caused an error message to display when joining a Samba domain. What is significant and noteworthy about this bug and the resolution is that it required a team of people to solve it from multiple companies. The bug is described here at this link.
I'd like to thank the partners of ClearCenter who originally reported the bug, the Samba team members who confirmed and tested the bug, and special thanks to the engineers at Microsoft who found the solution.
VP Technology, ClearCenter
