Hi Guru's

Seek expert advise on how to check secure channel for a samba box . Generally we could use NLTEST /SERVER:HOSTNAME /SC_QUERY:DOMAIN NAME command to check the secure channel status of a windows host. But I would like to know how to test whether there is any issue with the secure channel for a SAMBA machine. (SC between SAMBA and the DOMAIN) . Expert advise greatly appreciated. Thank You

I was going to say you could use the Netdom command line utility.

But, if I am not mistaken, SAMBA resets the Schannel once per session, not like windows that is once per month.

Netdom is used for resetting SC in windows clients if I am not wrong . However I just wanted to check the status of the secure channel between the DC and a Samba server. Thanks
