Hi, I upgraded to 3.0.1rc1-1 in a test enviroment (from 3.0.0-1 in
RH9.0) and after that I wasn't able to autenticate users anymore.

I'm using security=domain and idmap backend = ldap

I found that the 3.0.1rc1 use the file /etc/pam.d/samba with these

auth            required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so nullok
account         required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
session         required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password        required        /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so # shadow md5
nullok audit

and the 3.0.0 use these:

auth       required     pam_nologin.so
auth       required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password   required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth

I'm not an expert concerning pam.d but I just swap the files (using the
old one) and starts to work fine.

The funny thing was that getent passwd works fine, but when I tried to
access a resource from my Windows machine samba asked me for User and
passwd, so It took me a while find the problem.

regards, Leandro.-
