Greetings, and thank-you to till for the clear & concise Ubuntu Samba HOWTO! I think I've almost got it working, but I'm having trouble logging onto the domain from my Win2k box. I'm sure it's something simple, but it's apparently beyond me. Can someone point me in the right direction? When I try to configure the Win2k box to logon to the domain for the first time, I get this: "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain 'JGENET': Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password." This happens whether I try to logon as 'root' or as my username (which I think is configured as a domain admin Samba). I've tried both my Samba root password and my system root password (which I didn't expect to work). Note that I can see the Ubuntu box on the network (otherwise I'd get a 'domain not found' error, instead of an 'unknown user'). I can also logon successfully (I think?) from the Ubuntu box to localhost using smbclient, for both my root account and my user account. That tells me that I don't have a smbpasswd problem, right? So it seems like there's some kind of mismatch between what Windows is sending the server and what the server wants. I tried changing my Windows username to match my Ubuntu user account, but that was no help. I also tried setting the Samba log level higher, but the output was too cryptic (and too voluminous) for me to parse it. I've done all the flailing that I can think of, and so now I'm crying out for help. Any advice? I can provide plenty more details -- I've just left them out for brevity here. Thanks!
