Cannot login

Hello again,

We are making progress.  I am starting the right Daemons, and I have
samedit working.  Right now there are three entries in
private/smbpasswd:  root, trevor, and polonius$.  Eveything is working
on the unix side, in samedit using ntlogin trevor can login.  Polonius
will join the domain (I get a little message saying welcome to
DomainName) and wants to restart.  I restart polonius and get the login
screen.  Try to login to the domain as trevor and get a message that
"The system cannot log you in (c000019b)  Please try again or consult
your system adminstrator".  Another oddity is that when I try to add
domain users and groups to local groups, the User Manger lists the
contents of /etc/passwd and /etc/group rather the contents of
private/smbpasswd.  How is User Manager getting ahold of my Unix user
info?  I have searched in vain for another smbpasswd file it might be
reading.  It is as if polonius believes /etc/passwd is smbpasswd (I use
NIS-Plus, so trevor is not in /etc/passwd on this system).  Maybe I have
a config option wrong?

Thank you,
