Samba NTDOM under solaris 2.6

Hi all,

I have been doing battle with NTDOM on a Solaris 2.6 Sparc 2 for a couple of
days now. I am using the main CVS branch (which I got initially on Apr 1,
and refreshed today Apr 6).

I have followed the NTDOMAIN.txt with the exception of step 3, where I ran
the command smbpasswd -a -m BUG (the clients name is BUG). Encrypted
passwords seem to be working fine for simple filesharing.

When an BUG (NT4 SP3) tries to join the domain, it gets "The machine account
for this computer either does not exist or is not accessable." I have set
the debug level to 20 and pored through the results, but I am unable to find
an obvious error condition. To summarise the machine seems to connect to
SID=S-1-5-21-123-456-789-123, and one LSA_CLOSE.

I have not included any logs as they are large, and I am unaware which bits
are relevant.

I have not seen any reference to NTDOM working on Solaris, letalone 2.6.
Should this work? If anyone else has got this combination to work, do they
have any tips for me?

Failing that, can anyone make any helpfull suggestions?
