    Thanks for this really great tutorial.

    I’ve been using this for almost 2 months now but just recently I am not able to edit or add users in Active Directory Users and Computers.
    Whenever I do right click to any user then go to properties, all I got is “This user is a member of the following COM+ partition set.

    I can add and edit users in zentyal though.

    I hope you can help me..

      Verify time settings on both systems. If time difference between systems is greater than 5 min you might experience odd problems. Also, leave the realm, reboot and join the domain again.

    Wonderful and a very simple and descriptive guide. Helped a lot and worked as a charm for me. I just wonder if using this kind of setup in a commercial environment would invite Microsoft license trouble to me????

    Expert’s opinions please

    Thank you

    I have the same problem as the user above:
    CNAME the smb done with Microsoft RSAT not see Zentyal web interface
    CNAME made ​​the samba GUI shown .

    DNS interface of RSAT can see both …

    Think r be any order (kind of rebuild) to push the graphical interface made ​​RSAT recognize something that is there ?

    I installed server is 3.5
    And the operating system that I put RSAT is Windows 7 Enterprise

    Thank you !
