It turned out to be something corrupt in my
/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd file. I reverted to the version from
before I had mass added my users and the workstation went right in. Guess
I get to re-add everybody without using mksmbpasswd.sh :( Oh well, I tried.
Just as a by the by, I've observer an NT4SP6 workstation making continous
connect to IPC$ as nobody. Any ideas?
