I have an installation of  Samba 2.0.5a in order to setup shares  for

Winframe server at logon the system does not mount the drives and
asks   for a password to make the connection to a drive,
   Despite entering the Windows NT or server passwords the drives do
not  mount.

   On some occassions resetting the NT password seems to overcome the
   problem, also bouncing the smb daemons works.
   This is an intermittent problem which only happens on the winframe
   servers, and only
   happens for some users. The problem also corrects itself at times.

is  also running Samba, it also asks users for a password on some
   Obviously the users are already authenticated on the PDC and have
   entries in the password files for lhrsys0 & lhrsys61 (the print

   This has happened on previous versions of Samba too.
   Any ideas?
