I'm making progress. I now see the samba fileserver that I want when I go
to Computers Near Me under My Network Places in Windows 2000.
Unfortunately, when I double click it, I get an error message saying that
"\\ns1 is not accesssible. The specified network name is no longer
This places an error message in the /var/log/samba/feynman.log file that
[2000/09/07 05:50:45, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1392)
domain_client_validate: Domain password server not available.
[2000/09/07 05:50:45, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(70)
Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,510) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
[2000/09/07 05:50:45, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(2456)
PANIC: failed to set gid
I don't think that I'm using the Win2k as a PDC (how do I tell?). Any
advice would be greatly appreciated.
