I'm betting that NT4 with SP4 will act a lot like NT5. Ihave been
playing around with NT5 Beta 1 Wks for the past few days trying to get
it to join my samba domain.
Here's why I have noted so far.
- The NT5 box sends a SAMLOGON to the PDC but does not specify a
- The QUERYFORDC response being sent back did not contain all the
information it needed. If the mailslot was NETLOGON\NET\NTLOGON, it
After working on the code locally here I got past the previous two
problems. Still could not join the domain though due to the fact that
it was trying to connect to \\SAMBA_PDC\IPC$ as user "Administrator"
(which I was logged in under ).
So I thought, "I'll try to browse the Samba PDC and see what
happens"....Blue-Screen-of-Death!!!! This is reproducible. The packet
trace shows that the NT5 box dies after trying to connect to
\\SAMBA_PDC\WEB$. Looking at the response from an NT4 PDC, the return
code is different, but I do not think this is major.
Has anyone tried this with NT5 yet?
As an aside, I noticed that in nmbd_processlogon.c,
process_logon_packet(), the uint32 "ntversion" value being sent back in
the response packet is the same as the value recieved. I have noticed
in the packet traces that NT5 sets this value to 0x3 while NT4 sets it
to 0x1. Not sure about 3.51 ( probably 0x1 as well ). I have read
though the CIFS spec and din;t see any reference. Did I miss it?
