can somebody tell me what am I doing wrong to never get access to the
'security tab' (ownership).
Through Network Neighborhood, when seeing 'properties-tools-administer', I
always get the message : 'The server <\\our_server_name> does not accept
remote requests.'
And of course, when I'm trying 'properties-security-permissions/auditing'
it crashes with 'The remote procedure call failed' (so from
http://anu.samba.org/swat/help/NT_Security.html, that
should be normal I should get another message)
When I'm trying 'properties-security-ownership' I get a beautifull 'This
program has perform ...', the wonderfull well know and very explicit
Our log file gives the messy :
[1999/07/20 11:56:05, 1] smbd/ipc.c:(3267)
api_fd_reply: INVALID PIPE HANDLE: 0
We are using Samba 2.0.4b (precompiled version from this site)
here are our lines from smb.conf (do not laught, we are testing it, it is
not under production for now)

SAMBA is an existing group on unix,
/var/adm/samba/admin/username.map is filled with :
root=Administrator unadministrateur
unadministrateur : name of a user that is know under our domain and that
have an account on HPUX (same one as 'admin users = unadministrateur' under
[eric] section.)
The windows login 'unadministrateur' have the administrator right under
this domain.
We are using an HP-UX 10.20.
So, what king of service sould I use, start, cancel ... ?
What kind parameter should I avoid, use, modify ... ?
There is an 'rpcclient' program on /opt/samba/bin, should I use this ?
We try all kind of connection from NT server, from Win95 with both account
'administrator', 'unadministrateur' , 'toto', his uncle and so on ..
everything goes wrong for us.
Can somebody eventually give me an 'proper' smb.conf that works ?
In advance, thanks to.
