>Hi ,

I have posted this the tech list before and upset a few people because I 
was told to post to the samba only list.
So firstly I appologise for that and secondly thank you very much for the 
help received.

But with the help I received from this list Ive manged to get Winbind to 
work 99%, but all I really need is one last bit of advice

Local users login ok, the error doesnot stop logging in, but It would be 
nice to find out why.

Well, I guess it must be either winbind, one of the other pam modules, or 
something in one of the shell rc files?

Has anyone come across this before at all?, or could someone possably pint 
point it down to a section.

Ive managed to find a posting in the samba list regarding this, but there 
was no follow up to it.
