No idea. Did the server service start and the
stop or is it running and the client complains?
Need more details?

These two are probably related. I found some problems
with the NTTIME variables in the passdb files. Haven't
had a time to check the changes in. Will try to do so
tomorrow. They're fairly simple.

Nope. I'm running about 45 NT Workstations off of
Dec 20th's build in a production environment.

It's ok to rant sometimes. :-)

OK. Here's what I have. This setup works off of a mid
to late December build of 2.1prealpha.
Server : Sparc Ultra Enterprise 2
w/ 512 RAM running Solaris 2.6
attached to a virtual network
CVS build : December 18, 1998
Clients : ~40 NT 4.0 SP3 workstations
with some additional hotfixes (one
Wks with SP4). 32 of these machines are
in a student lab that is open 24 hours a day
and the rest are sitting on faculty desktops
Samba 1.9.18p7 serving running on the primary interface of
the PDC (yep that's 2 Samba servers of the same machine)
The 1.9.18p7 server serves files and printers to the NT box.
I did this because of stability problems in the early
implementation of NT SMB suport in the Samba code. It's has
This Sun also acts as a font server and NFS for about
400 Sun workstations and serves NFS to Samba server
which serves about ~200 machines.
