I have also tried this, and can't seem to get my client joined into the domain.

The command "smbpasswd" does not seem to exist on the syno box.

Any help would be apriciated

Hello world,

it seems to me it doesn't work on DSM3.0-1354 :(

As I'm not a linux-grown-up, I spent hours and hours trying and recovering, searching, reading and trying again: I found no working configuration.

Synology support says:
We are sorry to inform you we don't officially support PDC ...
My last trial was to install samba from ipkg (version 3.2.15-4). After installation I had to modify the symbolic-links to smb.conf and smbpasswd (otherwise samba didn't start anymore). Then, as I restarted samba, it seemed that samba started twice...

Code: Select all

MY_SYNO_SRV> /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S80samba.sh restart

...does anybody know about this appearence?

Today I lost my S80samba.sh-file - I'm re-newing Syno's Firmware now... and it takes another 25 minutes.

Is any crack out there having some time to help a bloody Samba-PDC-rookie?

Eureka! I got it :D

It's a matter of samba version - hopefully Synology applies version 3.2.15 soon.
By then I will test it on a DS207+, because on my 'PlayStation DS107e' performance is pretty poor
