Have a problem connecting Samba 2.2.7 on Redhat Linux 7.2 to a Win NT 4 
PDC.  I have set the following in the smb.conf file:-

security = domain
password server = CAT
encrypt passwords = yes
local master = no
os level = 0
domain master = no
preferred master = no
domain logons = no
wins server =
dns proxy = no

I have entered the Samba server as a Machine in the Server Manager.

When I use the command:-

smbpasswd -j lister -r CAT

I get the following error message:-

modify_trust_password: unable to connect to SMB server on machine CAT. 
Error was : code 0.
2002/12/10 14:49:15 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change 
password for domain LISTER.
Unable to join domain LISTER.
