Thank you Andrew.  I was looking at joining because it was mentioned that to
get sessionid.tdb, you needed to join domain.  I looked ing smbd.log and saw
a connection from davidsha, and then in my workstation log and saw at the

 user_in_list: checking user |INS+DavidSha| against |INS+DavidSha|
[2002/07/02 08:40:53, 5] lib/username.c:Get_Pwnam_internals(223)
  Trying _Get_Pwnam(), username as lowercase is ins+davidsha
[2002/07/02 08:40:53, 5] lib/username.c:Get_Pwnam_internals(251)
  Get_Pwnam_internals did find user [INS+DavidSha]!

I also keep getting an xterm session pop up that says:

xterm: Can't execvp /usr/local/bin/gdb

I think this comes from the line in smb.conf:

panic action = /usr/openwin/bin/xterm -display $DISPLAY -e
/usr/local/bin/gbd -p %d

gdb is in /usr/local/bin.  What does it mean it can't execvp it?

So it joined fine.  sessionid.tdb is not related to this at all - and
should be created on the first login to the server.

Look into the smbd logs for connections, not the domain join.
