Samba 2.0.1 vs. CVS with Domain PDC & TSE

First, let me say a HUGE thank you to the Samba Team, Andy
Polyakov (tips on getting things to work w/Terminal Server), and
others!  I actually got things working where my Solaris 2.6 box
was pretending to be an NT PDC for both NT Workstation and NT
Terminal Server Edition (TSE).  Very cool, and very funny.
Probably the most stable PDC the Redmond kids have ever seen...

My question is, I can only get things to work using the CVS
source from which I
downloaded on 02 Feb 1999 (three or four days ago).  If I try to
use the brand-new 2.0.1 distribution, my clients cannot seem to

The only mods I made to the CVS source was the nttrans.c
suggestion (#if 0 / #endif) from Andy Polyakov, and Solaris 2.6
include bug considerations in configure,, and

In 2.0.1, the only change I made was to again implement Andy's
nttrans.c mod.

Does this make sense to anyone?  I could grab some log excerpts
if that would help (I'm way too tired right now).  The NT
workstation box actually popped up a couple of psuedo infomative
boxes like:

"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the
system's computer account in its primary domain is missing or
the password on that account is incorrect."

The other message was much more terse - something about not
being able to log in, I think.

I noticed that 2.0.1 creates MACHINE.SID, while the CVS build
only seems to need SAMBA.SID (SAMBA is my domain name).  Sorry
if I've missed something in the docs - I promise I have been
putting a bunch of time into studying the material.

Any tips / ideas anybody?
