Solaris 2.5.1
Samba 2.0.4b running as PDC
NT Workstation 4.0 5SP


have any of you ever tried to install Sophos Anti-Virus
on Samba PCD working as a file server?. 

There is no problem when I make central installation on Samba. 
When I install a Sophos client on NT Workstation, it wants me to name 
the domain and the account that will be used while upgrading. 
I fill it with the correct domain name and existing account, 
but Sophos says there is no such an account on domain name,
that is not true.

Is it connected with the fact, that NT Workstation treats all
users authorizated in PDC as SAMBA_DOMAIN/Accout Unknown?

Where is the problem? I will appreciate any help.
