I have the next errors when I change a password from Windows 95  in a
Samba PDC :
  Jul 22 21:02:03 pp smbd[13486]: domain_client_validate: unable to open
the machine account password file for machine PP in domain SMBFIB.
  Jul 22 21:02:03 pp smbd[13486]: [1999/07/22 21:02:03, 0]
  Jul 22 21:02:03 pp smbd[13486]:   trust_password_lock: cannot open
file /usr/local/samba/private/SMBFIB.PP.mac - Error was No such file or

I don't understand it , Why find the file SMBFIB.PP.mac? this file  only
must exist in the machines that join in domain not in the PDC.
The pasword is changed when from windows 95  I do logon in the PDC but
If I do logon in other domain member (not in PDC) the password is not
changed and  the error is always.

Any idea?

Thanks in advanced.
