I'm having the same problem as Matthew, i.e. I can't get user info
with the NT User Manager. When I try it takes a while and then
display "RPC call failed". Here's what happens with rpcclient:

rutcor:~/samba/source> bin/rpcclient -S neumann
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Enter Password:
smb: \> lsaquery

LSA Query Info Policy

Neumann is a running the latest alpha of Samba obtained via CVS an hour
ago (it's a Sun4 Sparc running NetBSD 1.3.2). It's set up as PDC for our
tiny network of NT workstations. Serving passwords and logon scripts works 
fine. Another thing that doesn't work is browsing Neumann. If I double
click on it in the net'hood I get "Access denied". Listing shares via
smbclient does work fine though.

I'd be happy to provide more detailed info on our configuration or debug
logs. Just let me know what you need.
