Some lines of Code are missing checking the shadow password. Either
include them from 2.0.x (I think you don't know what they are :-)) or put
our password from /etc/shadow to /etc/passwd.

That's why unencrypted passwords w/o smbpasswd don't work either, I think.

You can also change the call to swat in /etc/inetd.conf from "... swat" to
"... swat -a", so no authorization is checked. This way you at least can
administer Samba with swat. Well, the status page is broken, too....

BTW: To the community: Where do I put my diffs and how do I create them
best? Do I get a CVS account or do I send text diffs by email?

The level is very different. You can't speak of "the PDC code", but
actually, since at least 2.0.3 PDC works fine, without usage of any NT
admin tool though. Bad grouping functionality, but Domain Admins work
