So here's what I'm after:
- Create Ubuntu inside Virtualbox (done)
- Join it to the domain using
net ads join -S example.com -u admin(done)
- Update the DNS using
net ads dns register(done)
- Be able to visit the netbios name as defined in smb.conf (lets call it Bob). [Not done]
The problem I am having is that it looks like, even though the machine is now on the AD, and I can browse users in the AD, etc... My network configuration (IP/route tables, etc) are not correct.
For example, my AD server is in the 172 IP range, while BOB is sitting at 10.0.2.15.
The DNS server stores Bob's value as 10.0.2.15, so when I ping it from my workstation at 172, I end up getting no response (obviously it's on a different net).
Bob's route table is configured to deal with 10... range of IP, rather than 172.
I have attempted doing commands such as
ifconfig eht0 172.16.1.118 netmask 255.255.255.0 and even editing the route tables, but that then makes outbound network traffic imposable.
I'm not really a great network expert here so any help is greatly appreciated.
