When I try to join my samba domain (SAMBA) it gives the error log below.
If I simply access a SHARE on the same Samba server the share works fine
(and authenticates fine).  

Encryption is on and working.  workgroup = SAMBA Domain logons = yes.  I
followed the Samba NT-DOM FAQ but didn't get past joining the domain.  My
platform is DG/UX 4.2 (intel).  Anybody have any ideas what to try?
