Please someone help!!!!

I already posted before a call for help and nobody answered. I can't join
the domain!!!!!

This is what the log registers if I try
"smbclient -L samba_server -Uusername"


msrpc_receive: failed
domain_client_validate: unable to validate 			password
for user ralf in domain BOSANOVA_TNG to 			Domain
controller \\..
SMB LM/NT Password did not match!
Rejecting user 'ralf': authentication failed
netbios connect: name1=*SMBSERVER       name2=SULPHUR        


On the command line I get this:

sulphur.is.rice.edu# ../bin/smbclient -L sulphur -Uralf
doing parameter workgroup = BOSANOVA_TNG
doing parameter server string = Samba Server TNG %v
doing parameter netbios name = sulphur
doing parameter encrypt passwords = yes
doing parameter security = user
doing parameter smb passwd file = /usr/site/samba-cvs/private/smbpasswd
doing parameter log level = 2
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
failed session setup
failed session setup

If I try to make an NT4.0 machine join the domain, I get the "Check the
computer account on the domain" thing.

The accounts for the computer and the user were created with samedit, by
root. So, they are in the proper format -I would think-. For sure it is
not the format that samba 2.0.6 uses.

Again, here's the smb.conf file:

	debug level = 3
	workgroup = BOSANOVA_TNG
	server string = Samba Server TNG %v
	netbios name = sulphur
	encrypt passwords = yes
	security = user
	smb passwd file = /usr/site/samba-cvs/private/smbpasswd
	log level = 2 
	log file = /usr/site/samba-cvs/var/logs/log.%m_%U
	max log size = 100
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	logon path = ""
	logon drive = U:
	domain logons = Yes
	os level = 65
	preferred master = Yes
	domain master = Yes
	local master = yes
	time server = yes
	dns proxy = No
	wins support = Yes
	hosts allow = 128.42.
	domain group map = /opt2/samba-cvs/sunos5/lib/domaingroup.map
	user name map = /opt2/samba-cvs/sunos5/lib/username.map
        local group map = /opt2/samba-cvs/sunos5/lib/localgroup.map
        domain user map = /opt2/samba-cvs/sunos5/lib/domainuser.map

Please!!!! Anybody sees something wrong here???

This is what the smbpasswd looks like:


Please help.
