Cannot Open smbpasswd

I've been playing with the NTDOM code and have run into a problem that I can't resolve. My samba server, a Sun Sparc 5 running Sol 7, reports a permission error when I use a client to attempt to join the domain. The file log.client is appended with:
startsmbfilepwent_internal: unable to open file /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd. Error was Permission denied
unable to open sam password database.
# ls -al /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
-rw------- 1 root root 212 Nov 2 14:32 /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
# ps -aef |grep nmb
root 13123 1 0 13:09:11 ? 0:01 /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D -l /var/adm/samba/log -d10
I've added some print statements to the nmbd process that verify the sys_fopen() args are correct and that the gid is 0 (the egid is not 0, but since I've never really understood what egid's are for, I don't know if this is a problem or not.)
Can anyone explain why nmbd can't open this file for reading? This is causing my attempt to join the domain to fail...
