more info. Perhaps useless.
When I try to become a member of the Samba domain on Win2k, it asks me for
a username and password to use. It says that this account must have
permission to join the domain.
In my smbpasswd file I have at least the following two accounts:
root, who only has the U attribute assiciated with it,
rsharpe, who has both the U and W attributes.
If I specify root and the root passwd, then I quickly get a message back
saying that the specified net password is not correct,
while, if I speciy rsharpe, then after a long while I get a message back
that the domain cannot be found.
Have to start writing that chapter soon.
