I'm running samba 2.2 pdc on solaris 8 and am having touble getting a
windows 2000 pro workstation to join the domain.  I have no problem
accessing the domain from a win98 pc.  

The error I get when I try joing is:

"The procedure number is out of range."

My smbpasswd entry looks like :

testpc$:506:882D8750941D0A28D109DED161091DFE:4D76E00AC502B4F367A64E700A775FE0:[W          ]:LCT-3AF04136:

it was created using "smbpasswd -a -m testpc$"

I noticed in the log file with an error message:

[2001/05/02 14:05:57, 10] passdb/smbpass.c:startsmbfilepwent_internal(84)
  startsmbfilepwent_internal: opening file /samba/private/smbpasswd

  unable to open smb password database.
[2001/05/02 14:05:57, 5] rpc_parse/parse_prs.c:prs_debug(63)

not sure why I'm getting this error when I have the user trying to create
the account in both the domain admin group  and domain admin users 
options in the smb.conf

thanks for any help you can offer
